This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

»» > 


The history of the progress of the National Church should be of para- 
mount interest to all who recognise the inseparable connection between 
the religious and secular life. 

An impartial and intelligent examination of the work of the Church 
of England during the past year can hardly fail to create and strengthen 
the impression, that, whatever may be the actual net results of all that 
has been achieved, the Church has sought with fixity and sincerity of 
purpose, to bear her witness for Christ, in seeking to make her spiritual 
ministrations effective for the advancement of true civilization, and the 
amelioration of every phase of want and suffering. 

With the frankest confession of many failures, it may yet be said 
that never in any previous age has the Church done her work with such 
earnestness and with such honest and persistent determination to fulfil 
her Lord's commission to spread the Gospel of Kighteousness over the 

The desire to deepen the spiritual life, among both Clergy and Laity, 
finds its embodiment in the widening and systematic provision made in 
Retreats and Quiet-days for the encouragement of higher conceptions of 
duty, and for the attainment of a higher standard of spiritual life. 

The claims of spiritual destitution among the masses have found due 
recognition in the several developments of Home-mission work described 
in this volume ; the activities which such records indicate are encouraging, 
as showing that the conscience of the Church is alive to her paramount 
doty to make the extension of the Kingdom of Christ the first aim in all 
her ministratio^ns. 

The co-operation of the Laity is becoming more and more evident as 

vi preface. 

an essential to the vitality and efHcacy of the Church's work, and it is 
interesting to trace in these pages the efforts that are being made to give 
direction and pi'actical power to Lay-service. 

The prominence recently given to questions touching Religious and 
Secular education has naturally drawn attention to the obligations of the 
Church in this department of her work, and it may be truly said that no 
greater sacrifices have been made than in the service of elementary 
education, and in the training of the young in religious and moral 
principles, and habits of life. 

In combating the moral degradation, with its natural outcome of 
want and suffering, abounding among the masses, the Church has 
recognized one of her chief duties, both from a spiritual and philanthroinc 
point of view. Year by year she not only maintains but extends in 
no small measure a not-work of Preventive Homes, Penitentiariea, 
Orphanages, Haspitals, Convalescent Homes, Nursing and such-like 
Institutions. The records given of the existence and working of such 
benevolent agencies, exhibit the active desire of the Church to be ever 
at the right hand of the people, in all that may help to lighten their 
burdens of daily care and need. 

The records given of endeavours made to extend the Kingdom of 
Christ in Foreign lands are interasting and full of promise. Still it 
must be admitted, that the conscience of Churchmen needs to be still 
more quickened to a sense of responsibility, in the discharge of the 
solemn trust committed by Christ to the Church, to preach the Gospel to 
the heathen ; and to make provision for the spiritual care of those who 
have gone from us to live and work in our Colonies and other regions. 

The information given by the Bishops of our Colonial and Missionary 
Sees is exceedingly valuable, in exhibiting the remarkable growth of the 
Church abroad — information which may be found in full detail in the 
chapter illustrating the extension of the Colonial Episcopate. The 
Statistical review furnished of the work and progress of the Church 
during the past year will serve to gauge the character and measure of 
the obligations we acknowledge, and the extent to which they have been 

We have again to express our indebtedness for valuable contributions

Wakeman, the Very Rev. the Dean of Cork, Rev. L. Hart, D.D. (U.S.A.),

the Cliaplain of the Fleet, the Chaplaiu-Geueral, and the Rev. J. 
Hargrove. We would also gititefuUy acknowledge the readiness with 
which the Bishops* Secretaries, and the Editors of Diocesan Calendars, 
have assisted us. 

By the desire and authority of the Bishops, the Clergy have again 
been requested to communicate a return of Parochial work and iinance, 
and they have responded in such increasing numbers, and with such 
eonscientious care, as to render the results of the tabulation, as a whole, 
of exceeding value as an authorized work of reference and instruction to 
the Church. 

It is possible, we readily admit, to misrepresent the truth by 
attaching too much importance to statistical tests as evidencing the 
failure or success of the Church. Within well-defined limits, however, 
and by judicious use, this yearly registration of Parochial work cannot 
fail to be of practical service, and there is proof enough already of its 
value. It has guided the Church to a fuller and more accurate 
aoqoaintance with what has been, and might be done, and has tended in 
no small degree to remove the prejudices of many, who, from insufficient 
knowledge, have so often misjudged the Church. 

The Statistical records of the past year will be found to indicate 
consistent and steady progress in every department of Church work, but 
especially in its more direct spiritual influences upon the life of the 

The deep gratitude which moves the heai*t of the Nation to rejoice at 
this time over the longest and most glorious reign in its history, should 
not unnaturally lead the Church to reflect upon the part she has played 
in making the influence of Christianity tell upon the formation of the 
3fational character, and the advancement of civilization during this 
period. No impartial observer of English History during the present 
century can fail to allow that the integrity, progress, and peace 
characterizing the National life, have been ever closely interwoven with 
religious progress, which the work of the Church of England has done so 
mnch to further. 

During the present reign, the Church, by higher conceptions of 
daty, and more zealous devotion, has undoubtedly advanced the cause 
of Christ, and the welfare of mankind, to an eictent unparalleled in any 
previous period. 


With the mitterinl progress of the Nation must ioevitably grow up, 
side b; side, the evils that wealth and poverty create, and in like measure 
the responsibilitieB of tbe Church must increase, and those whose hearts 
are (K>nceraed ia the moral and spiritual welfare of the people, will yearn 
and pray that she may be found faithful in responding to the claims 
which the wants of the age may lay upon her self-sacrifice and devotion. 

For the present, tbe Church is free from political strife to do her 
Master's work. The respite may be short or long. Sooner or later the 
conflict will begin again. The issues, whatever they may be, are in 
the hands of tbe Great Buler, and, trusting to the pledge of Christ's ever- 
living pi'esence, we can work and wait in stillness. Mindful of the many 
signs of a deep and gi-owing attachment to the Church of England, and 
of tbe wide-spread recognition of the many sen'ices she has rendered, in 
advancing all that is best and noblest in the intei'ssts of the Nation, we 
hesitate to believe that the people will pei-mit the bonds connecting 
Church and State to be ruthlessly torn asunder. Be this as it may, the 
records of this book will be found to witness, that the Church of this 
age, inspired by the example of Christ, and more than ever strong io the 
equipments of the Spirit, is devoutly and fixedly bent upon her great 
charge and mission, to hasten tbe day when the kingdoms of this world 
shall become tbe kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ.

III. Voluntary Contributions. 

In dealing with Voluutary Contributions, it was only practicable to take account 
of sums raised by offertories in church and such parochial organizations as would 
come distinctly under the immediate direction or cognizance of the Clergy. It is 
olmoujily impossible to embrace, in such an inquiry as this, individual offerings 
privately conveyed to central societies and institutions. 

In the form of inquiry, instructions were given to exclude all grants from 
ecdeidastieal bodies holding church funds in trust, so that the ofTerings recorded 
roigbt represent exclusively the purely voluntary odbrt of the Church of the present 
day, the only exception being that of sums arising from endowments for the main- 
tenance of schools, and these are recorded* separately, that they may be independently 
accounted for. 

In treating the payments to the Assistant Clergy by tlw^ Incumbents as a voluntary 
offering, the principle followed has Ix'eu this, viz. : * That where the Incumbent, wbUe 
fully (uscharging his own duti(;s, n(*ede<l tin* assistanei* of other Ch^rgy for work that 
be could not himself accomplish, in consequence of the demands of his parish, by 
reaaon of population or other causes, in such cases, wliere the obligation was not 
legal but only moral, the payment to the Curate or Curates has been regarded as a 
voluntary offering. But where the Cumte was acting as a substitute for the Incum- 
bent, incapacitated by sickness or from otlier reasons for the discharge of his own 
duties, the payment has been considen'd a legal charge upon the income of the benefice, 
and not, therefore, accounted a voluntary offering.

The quickening of life and devotion in the Church of modern times 
naturally makes a corresponding demand for an increase in the number of 
well-trained and qualified candidates for Holy Orders. How to make the 
supply equal to the urgent need is a consideration of pressing and 
greatest moment. As the matter stands it ciin sctu*cely be said tliat the 
numbers of previous years have been maintained, whilst they certainly 
have not increased in proportion to the evident necessities. It becomes 
then an immediate duty to face these facts, and to reflect as to what are 
the hindrances in the way of attracting a much larger number of earnest 
and capable men to the ministry of the Church. 

It would not be difficult to suggest some of these obstacles, but there 
is one above others, which a deeper sense of responsibility and a larger 
jTpnerosity on the part of the Laity might speedily remove. The ranks of 
the Clergy are largely recruited from among those who have been, an<l 
are, increasingly incapable of meeting the necessary cost of training at 
the Universities or a Theological College. This nc^ed was j>ointedly 
illu.slrated at the Conference upon the Training of Candidates for Holy 
Orders, held at King's College, London, in July last. Eftorts have been 
nude to encourage Churchmen to contribute the necessary assistance, but 
it must be confessed that the results are disapjK)inting, and show plainly 
iluit the recognition of i-esponsibility is by no means comniensui*ale with 
the urgency of the Church's requirements. We venture to assert that no 
pTeater service could \ye offered in rendering the mission of the Church 
practically efficient than that of an adequate and generous flow of oirerinp:s 
to :i.ssist suitfiblo men to obtain Holy Orders, who now lack the means f«)r 
tiic'ir needful education. We have brielly rocordi^l what has so far Irhmi 
ucjne, and it must bo evident to any thoughtful reader that this foromo^tt 
w.iiit of the Church has met witJi but scanty support.

young men. Of these, twenty-seven arc now in Holy Orders. The Fund is only in- 
tended for those who belong to the Diocese, and who are going to one of the Univer- 
sities of Oxford, Cambridge, or Durham.

'Diocese of Exeter.— The Exeter Theological Students' Fund, founded by the late 
Bishop Pbillpotts, now consists of a capital sura of 15,497/., and is administered by 
the Dean and Chapter, who award grants of 50/. a year to graduates to continue 
theological studies at the University. 5000/. has been bequeathed to this Fund by 
the late Dean of Exeter. At the examination in October last eight were elected. 
Apply to Mr. W, J. Battishill, The Close, Exeter. 



The vigilant care manifested for the encourjigement and maintenance 
of a higher standard of intellectual equipment among the Clergy is not 
only a clear necessity, but a guanintee that the ministry of the Church 
will so maintain its mental culture as to correspond with the advance 
of education and thought among the people. The recent Conference in 
London of Theological Teachers was a practical expression of the desire 
and intention of the Church in this matter, and the deliberations of the 
Conference completely embodied the conviction, that though there is the 
greatest need to multiply the number of Candidates for Holy Ordei:s, it 
woidd be disastrous to attempt to efPecrt this result by any lowering of 
the standard of their education. Rightly enough, on the other hand, 
the requirements of due preparation have been incrijased. It is not 
enough, however, that this safeguard of efficiency should ])e assured to 
the Clergy on the threshold of their work. The increasing stniius of 
parochial and secular administration now laid ujwn the C'lergy make it 
more than ever important to emphasise the necessity of continued and 
systematic study. This end has been wisely and eilectually advanced 
by a series of Lectures for the Clergy, inauguiated in 1893, by the 
Faculty of Theology at Oxford, and renewed year by year at the Nime 
University, Cambridge and Durham. Though the numbers of the Clergy 
attending have not been large, they have not disiippointed the intention 
and hope of those who originated this movement, and they give pro- 
mise of quiet and solid work for the benefit of the Church in days to 
come. Efforts have also been made of a Diocesan character to encourage 
systematic study among the Clergy, and these too have not been void of 
present advantage, nor have they failed to afford assuranci?s of wider 
appreciation and usefulness.

Diocese of Canterbury.— Junior Clerical Beading Society. — This Society, which 
was originated in 1891 at a gathering of Priests ordained by the Archbishop, lias been 
now reconstituted. 

The object is to assist the Junior Clergy of the Diocese towaids systematic daily 
reading in obedience totheir Ordination vow. 

No pledge w exacted from the members, but there is a general understanding that each 
one will conscientiously and to the best of his power read at least one of the special sub- 
jects, and the general subjects in the six months allotted. 

Each member is presented soon after the Trinity and Advent Ordinations in each 
year with a syllabus arranged under four heads, viz. : 1, Holy Scripture ; 2, Dopjmntic 
Theology ; 8, History of the Christian Church ; 4, General Literature ; in which the 
Archbishop, who is President of the Society, has very kiudly undertaken to suggest the 
special books. 

His Grace has also promised to set an essay, once a year, on some subject arising out 
of the books mentioned. This essay, however, is to be optional. 

The Society is open to any one who has been ordained IViest by tlie Archbishop, or who 
h»s been licensed by him to a Curacy in this Diocese. There mv at present sixty members. 

Address, the Hon. Sec, Rev. Herbert Bull, Wellington House, Westgate-on-Sea. 

Clerical Beading Union, Chester. — In the spring of the year 1894 the Bishop ex- 
pressed his desire that some plan might be devised for promoting systematic reading among 
the Clergy, and more particularly among the younger Clergy of his own ordination. Ho 
wished, further, that the reading should not be encumbered, more than might l>e absolutely 
necessary, by rules and reguhitions. 

It was detennined to divide the year into four quarters, assigning a different subject 
to each. The only condition made is that members read the subjects appointed within the 
three months, but at their own times and according to their own convenience. The 
amount required is not so large as to exclude other reading. By selecting alternative 
subjVcts, a certain liberty of choice is also allowed. 

About thirty of the Clergy in different part^ of the Diocese act as local Hon . Secretaries, 
and by their kindness Reading Cards are issued quarterly to the members, who now number 
215, i.t\ about, or nearly, half the whole numl)er in the Diocese. The Hon. Secretaries 
also help in choosing the subjects.

The Clergy Training School, Cambridge. — The following statement, which was 
<irawD up in May 1887, will explain the general design of the School : 

The characteristic feature of the School (which conimejiced its work in the Lent 
Tern of 1881), as distinguished from Theological Colleges in genrml, is its close connec- 
tion with the life of the University, secured by the continued residence of its members 
*t thrir Colleges, and by its relation to the Professors of Divinity and to other resident 
Teachers. The students, while continuing to live amidst tlu; varied and useful in- 
flQ<*nce8 of College society, receive a devotional, doctrinal, and parochial training, and 
fre bound together, so far as the nature of the case allows, in a community. The School 
|s primarily designed for those Graduates who from their character and attainments are 
judged likely to profit by remaining in residence after taking their first degree. 
Members are reauired to be regular attendants at the servicers in their own College 
Chapels. Regular services are also provided by the School, with couraes of Devotional 

Courses of Lectures are given in the following subjects : (a) Holy Scripture ; 
i^\ Hrads of Christian Doctrine ; (c) The Creeds, the Prayer Book and Articles, the 
aistorical Position of the English Church with reference to Doctrine ; ('/) Composition 
^f i^rmons ; (<•) Pastoral Theology ; (/) Elocution ; and in other subjects {e.g. those 
J^'iuired for the preliminary examination of candidates for Holy Orders) on which 
l^cturf-s may from time to time be needed to supi)lement the tea(!hing in the Uri- 
yersity and Collegr-s. I'nictical work, in connection with existing agencies or otherwise, 
i-*^ undertakon by all members.

Entrance JEyamination for flon-KBrabuatea. 9 

Tlio examination will be dispensed with, and a certificate granted, in the case of those 
who can offer an equivalent. The equivalents allowed are as follows : {a) The Oxford 
and Cambridge Senior Local, {b) Examination for Certificates of the Oxford and Cam- 
bridge Joint Board, (c) The London University Matriculation, provided that the 
candidates shall have |tassed in Latin and Greek, {d) Responsions at Oxford, (e) 
I'f'viou** Examination at Cambridge, Parts L and IL, (/) One Examination after 
Matricnlatiou in Trinity College, Dublin, (g) Examinations for the title of Associate 
iu Arts of any of the twelve recognized University Colleges in England. 

The certificate of having passed any one of the specified examinations must be 
forwarded to the Principal of the Theological College at the same time and in the same 
way as an application to enter for the examination, but without payment of a fee ; and 
a certificate must be obtained from the examiners that the equivalent is allowed'. 

Tlie examination is conducted under the control of a council consisting of represcnta- 
tires of (1) the Bishops of the two Provinces, (2) the Princiiwils of Theological Colleges, 
(3) the Examiners. 

Examiners are appointed by the two Archbishops and by the Principals of Theological 
Colleges (acting in conjunction), according to a fixed proi)ortion. 

Examinations are held three times a vear, viz. in the first week of December, in the 
second week before Holy Week, and in tlie last week of July. 

The following places have hitherto been centres for examination, but the list may 
vary from time to time : — Birkenhead, Birmingham, Durham, Exeter, Lincoln, Man- 
cheater, London (Highbury), London (King's College). 

Candidates for examination, and candidates who present a certificate of an equivalent 
examination, must apply through the Principal of the College at which they piopose to 
enter, or of which they are already probationary members. 

TTiMf applications mvst be made i/ti or before Novemlpcr \st for the December Ex- 
amination, mi ar before Ash Wediiesilaij for the Lent Exa}nination^ and on or before 
July ^sl for the July Examination. 

A fee of fifteen shUlings is eharged to every candidate, and the fees as well as the 
applications must be sent to the Principals of the Colletjes, by whom they will be forwarded 
to the Secretary of the Council. 

In September 1896, in 1897, and in Lent 1898. the subjects will be as follows: (1) 
Xenophon, Anabasis, Book I. (2) Cicero, de Senectvte. (3) Outlines of the Scripture 
History.^ (4) The Gospel of St. Luke in Greek for translation and inter[)retation. (5) The 
outlines *of English History. (6) The first and second books of Euclid, or Elementary 

N.B. In Papers 1 and 2 special regard will be had to ])arsing. Besides passages from 
the selected books, questions on grammar will be set, and easy sentences for translation 
taken from other books. 

In Paper 6 candidates will be required to satisfy the examiners in both books of 
Euclid. In all the papers regard will be had to English Grammar and Composition. 

The numl>er of candidates who presented themselves in September 1895 was 63, of 
whom -48 passed. 

In January 1896 the number was 46, of whom 37 j>assed. 

In Lent 1896 the number was 60, of whom 45 pa«»8ed. 
The experience of the examiners during the past year shows that on the whole there is 
an improvement both in Greek Testament and Scripture History*. 

In the Greek and Latin authors, the translations also give indications of imi)rovc- 
ment, hut the candidates arc often very ignorant of eh^mentary grammar. 

In Logic an improvement is also manifest, but in Euclid, although there arc a few 
gootl |apers, most of the work is very poor. 

In English History the jieriods are sometimes very unejpially known, and much more 
acrurary is needful. 

Tlie jrtfti'rs set in the Examinations of 1893 94 and of 1894-95 can be obtained from 
Messrs. Deighton, Bell and Co., Trinity Street, Cambridge, ])ri<:e 1^. for oat^h set. and 
further information concerning the examination can be obtained from the Rev. prof. 
Knnwiing, King's College, London.

Note- — ^Tlie Committee having the care of the publication of this book have felt 
the extreme importance of confining this List to those who from recor;nis<*d fitness 
might be found helpful in directing the thoughts and devotions of tlieir brethren 
during special seasons of retirement for spiritual exercises. For many reasons the List is 
for the present somewhat limited ; but it is hoped that it may be the means of drawing; 
out the help of others who have time and the peculiar capabilities for assisting in this 
most important work, upon which so much of the deeper influence of the Church in the 
world will always so largely depend.

It is our design in this section to deal with the subject of Church Extensio; 
and to trace its progress as far as we are able under the following headings 



The interesting Return of Lord Hampton upon Church Bnilding for the period ( 
thirty-four years (1840 — 1874) has several times been previously referred to, am 
shows that auring these years a sum of 25,548,703/. was raised for the building aD( 
restoration of Cathedrals and Churches. It is well known, however, that this retnn 
was by no means complete, and it has been estimated that, if it could have been mad 
so, it would have represented an annual expenditure of at least one million upon thi 
branch of Church work. A similar Return, in continuation and up to date, recentlj 
presented to the House of Lords, will be found in the Statistical Section of this book, 

During the last few years the Year-Book Committee has made a very general in- 
quiry, with a view to obtain similar information ; for obvious reasons universal co- 
operation in such an undertaking could hardly be expected or secured, so that the sumi 
recorded still fall short of the actual expencUture ; but the figures, as they appear in 
the following tables, were supplied by the Incumbents, and may therefore be accepted w 
accurate, and form a basis for calculation as to the total amount expended. It should 
be remembered that these figures represent voluntary offerings alone, grants from tht 
Ecclesiastical Commission and of such bodies holding Church Property in trust beinj 
carefully excluded.

rom the inquiry of the Cathedral Commission, as well as from information obtained 
le Year- Book Committee, it has been ascertained that from 1874 to 1884 the sum 
13,298/. was voluntarily contributed for th9 building, restoration, and adornment 


he organisation and working of these agencies afford the most convincing proof of 
jixious desire and determination of tiie Church to extend her ministrations in 
ensely ]>opulat45d centres of England and Wales. Several of these Funds have 
in existence for many years, and the results they have achieved have been full of 
ragement. By way of illustration we may instance what the Bishops of London 
done for London, the Bishops of Rochester for the southern district of the 
>polis, and the Bishops of St. Albans for the populous Deanery of Barking. 
tfort,s of a similar character have been more recently made with considerable success 
e Bishops of Durham, Newcastle, Llandaff, Peterborough, Gloucester and Bristol, 
Vakefield. The Bishops of Lincoln, Chester, St. Davids, and Manchester have 
ised Funds for Church Extension in Grimsby, Stockport, Swansea, and Manchester, 
ther effort is now being made to increase the Church accommodation in Hull. 


rem Reports contained in previous volumes some general idea has been given of 
has been done to extend and strengthen the work of the Church during a period 
renty-five years or more in the Dioceses of Chester, Liverpool, Peterborough, 
am, Winchester, and Manchester. For a like period information has been gathered 
(^urch Extension in certain large towns, and the results of the inquiry as they 
pcorded in the following tables indicate the activity and liberality shown in multi- 
ig the means of grace.

^TE. — Thoso figures include only voluntary contributions devoted to the Building, 
?en]ont, and Restoration of Churches, Endowment of Districts, Building of Par- 
i Houses and Schools, The totals would be vastly increased did they embrace 
ary offerings for the Annual Maintenance of Church Work. 

will be seon that the facts and figures given do not, in every case, coincide with 
le definite period, the reason for this being tliat a variety of circumstances has 
it ini{)ossible to obtain these records in a more systematic way.

DIOCESE OF LONDON.— Tlie Bishop of London's Fund was founded by the 
lato Archbishop Tait in 1863, and since that time has expended the sum of 
969,425/. 55. 6^. npon Church extension in the '^Dioccse. The income of the Fund 
for 1895 was 22,243/. Is. 3rf., showing in comparison with the previous year a 
decrease of 2.298/. 3s. 3d. This decrease, however, is entirely due to the smallness 
of the sum received on account of legacies, which amounted to only 655/., as against 
5,136/. 16s. 6rf., being therefore less by 4,481/. 15s. 6d. The grants made durine 
the year for the various objects of the Fund were as follows : Missionary Clergy and 
additional Curates, 5,231/. lOs. 2d. ; lay agents, 2,902/. lis. 2d. ; vicarages and 
endowments, 1,175/.; schools, 2,415/. 5s.; mission buildings, 7,499/. 13s. 6d.; 
church&s 6,297/. Os. lid. Assistance in providing the stipends of additional 
Curates in poor and populous parishes, and in securing permanent endowments 
for the same from the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, forms an important branch of 
the work. The 177 churches which have been built w^ith aid afforded by this Fund, 
and most of which would certainly not have been built without it, are only a part of 
the results which have come from its oi)erations. 

The population of the Diocese, now amounting to 3,400,000, as shown by the last 
census, has increased by 330,000 during the last ten years, the increase having taken 
place almost entirely in the suburban districts. Thus an immense responsibility is 
thrown upon the Church, and to keep pace with an annual increase of population of 
33,000 in such districts, it is necessary that at least five new churches should be 
provided every year. There is constant and urgent need, too, for more mission 
rooms, more Clergy, and more lay agents. To meet on anything like an adequate 
scale, the rapidly-growing wants of this already enormous Diocese, the Fund should 
have at its disposal at 15,000/. a year beyond its present income. 

Communications should be addressed to the Secretary, Rev. Henrv Kirk, 46a 
Pall Mall, S.W. 

The Eaft London Church Fond (President : Bishop of Stepney) was formed in 
1880 for the purpose of extending Home Mission work in East London. Some years 
later the North of London was added to the sphere of its o()erations, which now 
includes the entire eastem half of the Diocese of London, with a population of about 
1,600,000. These are distributed in uj)wai-ds of 200 parishes, most of them poorlj 
endowed, and, with few exceptions, quite unable to maintain, unassisted, their owr 
Church work. 

The E. L. C. Fund meets the permanent need of these parishes by helping t( 
supply living agents, clerical and lay, including readers, sisters, deaconesses 
mission women, and parish nurses, and of these there are 285 at present at work 
who are wholly or partly de])endent upon the grants made by the Fund. By it' 
work the proportion of Clergy to population, which in 1880 was 1 to upwards o 
4,000, has been raised to 1 to 3000. 

Every year makes' the work of this Fund more and more necessary, for the Eas 
London District is rapidly becoming poorer owing to the continual exodus of better 
to-do people to the suburbs, while also new building is continually going on. 

Tlie Fund possesses no pmpprty. Its whole reserve amounts to barely enough t* 
pay a quarter's grants, an<l it is only by the generosity of those who support it, tha 
it can maintain its work from year to year. For the lavSt three vcars the income ha; 
averaged about 18,000/., of which less than 5000/. has been given in annua 
sul>scriptions ; but it is estimated that at least 20,000/. a year is absolutely needeil 
while even more could profitably be spent. The release of a block-grant of 500/. J 
year during 1896 has, it is tru<% enabled the Council to extend their work in othei 
directions. They have made arrangements for two entirely new mission-districts, 
and have made other grants, but in many cases pressing appeals are still obliged tc 
go unanswered for lack of funds. 

Communications to be addressed to the Secretary, Rev. R. W. Harris, M.A., 26 
St. Mary Axe, London, E.C.

THE DIOCESE OF B0CHE8TEB. — The Bishop of Rochestor's Fund, otherwise 
known as the Rochester Diocesan Society, has been actively labouring during the 
past year to fulfil its objects in extending the ministrations of the Church more 
completely in the district south of the Thames. Being a distinctly missionary 
agency, it has ever acted upon its essential principles in applying its funds mainly 
to the employment of Misaionary Clergy, Assistant Curates, Scripture Readers, 
Deaconesses, and Mission Women, extending such further help as it may be able 
to the building of churches, mibsion rooms, and parsonage houses. During the year 
1895 the Society was instrumental in maintaining 16 mission Clergymen, 39 Curates, 
9 d(»acones8es, 30 Scripture readers, and 71 mission women. The Society has 
recently added to its objects the employment of assistant Curates in poor populous 
T^arishes, and asks for an increased income to meet the new demands on its resources 
thus incurred. 

The income for 1895 amounted to 11,573^. 0.«». 9(1. 

Communications should be addressed to the Secretaries, Rochester Diocesan 
Society, 49 Parliament Street, Westminster. 

DIOCESE OF ST. ALBAKS.— The Bishop of St. Albans* East London Fund is 
for the spiritUKl needs of * London over the Bortler ' — a district comprising the 
Victoria and Allhirt Dorks, Beckton, North Woolwich, Plaistow, Stratford, Leyton, 
Walthamstow, &c., and the Tilbury Dock District and Grays. 

Past Work. — The nineteenth year of the present Fund (the twenty -seventh year 
since the Bishop of Rochester's Fund first took over the work of the Bishop of 
London's Fund in this district) is drawing to a close. In these twenty-seven years 
the living agents have increased from 5 to 131, while the Bishop of St. Albans* 
Fund in less than niaetet»n years lias raisejl 203,300/., and has established 32 mission 
districts, of which 15 have ])ecome separate parishes; but of these 7 have only 
partial endowment, and are still supported in part by the Fund. 15 churches aided 
by the Fund have been consecrated. Othere have been enlarged, one rebuilt. 
About 54 mission churches or mission rooms have received large grants, and the 
Fund now pays over 413/. a year for the rent of 19 mission buildings (including the 
Refuge at Stratford). 1 6 parsonages and 2 clergy-houses have received grants, and 
much help has been given to Church Schools. Sites have been provided by free 
gift in 18 cases; and 43 have been purchased by the Fund at a cost of 19,548/. 
Nearly 3,000/. has been granted for endowment. 

The income for 1895 was 19,141/., and the year 1896 commenced with a deficiency 
of 904/. 

Present Position. — This Fund now supports 22 mission Curates, 63 parochial 
Curates, 15 lay readers, and 31 mission women (in all 131 living agents), at a total 
cost to it of 9,353/. a year. 

The Church accommodation in consecrated buildings is only for one in twelve. 
Part of the deficiency is provided for temporarily or permanently in mission churches. 
In 1891 an effort was started to build 12 new churches, an<l an equal number of 
mission buildings. Since then 8 new churches have been built (3 partially): one 
church has been rebuilt ; one has been completed, and the aocommodation doubled ; 
two have been enlarged. In the same period 13 mission buildings (7 permanent 
and 6 of iron) have been built, and one has been enlarged. 

The actual addition to the population between 1881 an«l 1891 was 185,000, eqnal 
to one-fifth of the whole growth of ' Greater London.* Since 1891 at least 100,000 
have been added. The rate of growth now is 26,000 a year, and the total population 
probably about 535,000. 

As regards church building, the position is even worse than before ; and it is 
now decided to aim at building 14 new churches and 15 mission buildings. 

Special Difficulties of the DiBtriot. — 1. 'London over the Border' has no public 
spirit or corporate union, being the growth together of small separate comuiunitios, 
2. It is capable of indefinite growth because of the largeness of its area ; and for the 
same reason the new districts spring up at a distance from the old churches, 
necessitating new churches and parochial organisations, and the work therefore has 
no finality. 3. It has no help (such as London and Rochester Dioceses have) from 
the chuTchefl pulled down in the City of London, and the Ecclesiastical Com- 

2 2 ©ioccaea of TWlaftcfielb snh Cbestet. 

have no property in it. 4. Most of the employment of labonr is in the 
ha.D<U of Joint SUicln Companies, vho cannot contribute in their corporate capacity, 
while it ie hard to get at the indiridual aharcholders. 

These difficulties can only be met by drawing attention to ' London OTer the 
Border.' 1. As an essential part of Loadon rieiced oj> a vihole, and a direet antie- 
gv^Jice of iU grealness and txpansum. 2. As a eenlre of population of ujiparalided 
growth, and where few of the well-to-do classes live, and where therefore the work of 
the Clinrch needs to he strcnfftliened/rom wiOunit.

DIOCEBE or WAEZFIELI).— ThB Bithop of VskeBeld'i Appeal Fnnd. —In 
Jnnnary 1B89 the Bishop Appointed a Commission to inquire into the wants of the 
Diocese as regards needful spiritual provision for its viui; and increasing population. 

Tile Commissioners have made their report, and have stated that, in order to 
do what is immediately required, it will be necessary to supplement orislina pro- 
viaiona by the formation of (1) five entirety new parishes, each involving clinrch 
schoola, paraonsgo, and endowment ; (2) twelve chapels of case — or, in other words, 
a second consecrated church in the same parish ; (3) thirty-four mission churches or 
mission rooms, a large proportion of which sliould be speedily provided. It also 
appears that the number of parochial Clergy is manifestly insufficient : and the Com- 
miasionera' Report furnishes a list of ttventy-seven parishes in which additional Cler^ 
are asked for, and of seventeen more in which at tlie leaat lay readers are needed, if 
additional Clergy cannot bo secured. It ia further recommended that no benefice 
ahould be of less value than 2001. a year — whilst there are eleven benefices in the 
Diocese conaiderably under thia amonnt. No calculation has as yet been made 
as to the exact amount required to meet these wants, but the Bishop estimates 
that B capital sum of 50,000/. at least will be required, and an annual income of 
aOOOf. for the Spiritual Aid Fund. 

An earnest appeal hns already been issued, and has met with much ^vonrable 
support. The income during tbe year 1895 was as follows : Donationa, 226/. ; 
Cliurch collections, 21. Hi. Od. ; collections in schools, 3/. 10s. id.; dividends on 
Consols, 308/. Zt. erf., tottd, 540J. la. Brf.

Work dona nnoe the (orautioii of the Tnnd.— A total sum of abont 70,000/. in 
connection with the Fund has been raised. Two parishes have hecn formed, churches 
built and partly endowed. A grant of 1000'. has been allocated to an endowed cnracy, 
another of 600/. to the endowment of a new pariah. Five new churches have been built, 
nine clinpels of ease and mission churclies have been provided, one chnrch enlarged, 
and three vicarages secured, while six assistant Curates have been supported at 
a total cost to the Fund of 5000/. Additional acconimodation has beeu provided 
for 4,860 persona, and the wbole of the churches, chapels of case, and mission 
rooitu built by the assistance of the Fund are free and unappropriated. 

It has been determined to close tbe Fund at the end of the tenth year, viz., on

DIOCESE OF KEWCASTLE.— The creation of the See of Newcastle in 1882 
naturally stimulated zeal for the increased usefulness of the Church in the Diocese, 
and this led to the formation of the Bishop of Newcastle's Fund. It sought to 
extend the work of the Church in the populous part of the Diocese about the 
Tyne, by the formation of new parishes, and the employment of missionary Clergy in 
new districts, assistant Clergy for large and populous parishes, and lay agents. It 
contributed also to the building of churches and mission rooms. The Fund raised to 
December 31, 1893, being a period often years, the sum of 107,286/. 6s. 8</. 

Twentj'-three additional Clergjrmen were appointed, fourteen of whom have 
charge of new parishes or conventional districts. Eleven new churches and 
nineteen mission chapels have been already opened, providing 9,612 additional 
seats. Three other churches are in progress, and five churches have been enlarged 
and improved. 

The Fund was originally intended to remain open for five years only. In 1888 it 
was agreed that its duration should be extended to ten years. It was closed accord- 
ingly on December 31, 1893, the Diocesan Society, incorporated in 1885 to promote 
Church work through the whole Diocese, making itself responsible for the stipends 
of six curates in charge of unendowed districts and for assisting others. During 
1894 and 1895 two iron and one permanent churches were erected ; fifteen churches 
were enlarged or restored ; four mission chapels or rooms were built and enlarged ; 
two parish halls wore erected ; fifteen schools were erected or enlarged, and two 
vicarages were built.

DIOCESE OF ST. DAVIDS.— The Swansea and East Oower Church Extension 
Fond. — This Fund was commenced in 1884 to meet the growing needs of the rapidly 
increasing town of Swansea and the adjacent neighbourhood in the Rural Deanery 
of Elast Gower. 

By the direct instrumentality of this Fund eight new permanent churches have 
been built, also nine mission churches, and two mission halls. These will provide 
7000 new sittings — all free. Four new ecclesiastical parishes have been formed in 
Swansea out of the mother parish of St. Mary, and thirteen additional Clergy are 
being employed. The total sum raised by this Fund in ten years, including value 
of seven sites, amounts to over 57,000/. Tliree new vicarage houses have been erected, 
and the four new parishes have all been endowed by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners 
with 150/. a year. 

The work of rebuilding the old and most inconvenient Parish Church of Swansea, 
at a cost of 24,000/., has been commenced, and the nave is to be completed by June 
1897. Also two Nonconformist chapels have been purchased in the mother 
parish of St Marjr^s, Swansea, and have been converted into a mission room for 
a very poor district, and into a parish room and a club room for young men.

Th forty-eighth report of the Commissioners furnishes the following 
carefully prepared statement, exhibiting the extent to which the augment^ 
ation and endowment of benefices has been assisted by the Commissioners 
in response to the very large amount of private benefaction which has 
been called forth. 

Summary of Work AccoMPLtsiiED by the CommipsionErs in the Aro mentation* 
AND Endowment of Benefices from 1840 to October 31, 1895. 

I. Total number of benefices augmented, upwards of 5,700. 
II. Total value of grants made by the Commissioners, 804,540/. per annum 
(perpetual annuity), representing 24,186,960/. in capital value. 

III. Total value of benefactions to meet the Commissioners' grants , 5,371,350/., 
equivalent to a permanent increase in the endowments of benefices of about 
179,045/. per annum. 

IV. 26,000/. (or more) per annum contributed by benefactors to meet Commis- 
sioners' grants for Curates in mining districts. 

V. Total increase in the incomes of benefices from augmentation and endowment 
secured through the instrumentality of the Commissioners, 1,009,585/. per 
annum to October 81, 1895, representing the income which would be derived 
from a capital sum of about 30,338,300/. 

The work of the Commissioners will be found presented in detail in 
the statistical section of this book, and those who are interested in the 
growth and stability of the Church will mark with thankfulness the 
evident liberality with which Churchmen are still ready to make personal 
sacrifices to extend her power and usefulness. 

The Commissioners will appropriate in grants, during the present year, the sum of 
ISO/XX)/. of capital. 

The distribution will be as follows : 

1. 40,000/. in meeting benefactions offered in favour of beneBcos, either by annual grants 
b aagmeutation of the incomes or by grants of capital towards providing and improving 
parsonage houses. 

2. 30,000/. in endowing churches in public patronage to which districts have been legally 
Msigned since the date of the census of 1881, containing in each case a population of 4000 
pencms at the date of such assignment. 

3. 74,000/. in meeting local claims, and oases to which the Commissioners are already 

4. 6000/. in making grants towards the maintenance of assistant Curates for poor bene- 
fices where the population is not less then 6000, and where benefactions of not less value than 
30OO/. are forthcoming in each case. 


The measure of the Church's readiness to respond to the call to open 
tip new fields of labour may be tested by the number of new districts 
formed from time to time^ every such district practically representing a 
fresh and zealous effort to fering the ministry of the Church within reach 
of the people making demands upon her services and hitherto but 
partially provided for. In the year 1880 Sir John Mowbray asked that 
a return should be made to the House of Commons of the number of 
parishes or districts constituted under the severally recognised Acts of 
Parliament since the year 1868 to the present time ; this return has been 
brought into a summary corrected to the latest possible date, and is 
included with other statistical tables in another seotion of this book. 

(tatbebral Services. 



Thb desire to m&ke aur Cathedral FoiiDdations of practical service in the 
ext«nsion and deepeaing of Church life is oae of maaj other signs of the 
growth and activity which mark the present age, 

A careful stndj of the following records will suffice to show that those 
who hold cbe^ historic foundations in trust, and live upon their emolu- 
uientfi, are fully alive to the duties which such poasesaion involves. 

The Mother Church of the Diocese should furnish the inspiration and 
model for the worship and work that should find its development through 
all the channels of parochial ministries, and that the Cathedral system is 
responding year by year with greater zeal to this high standard of its 
vocation is clear from the nature and extent of the services now

The qujekened Bctivitiee of the Church in the H<Hne MuMbm field are full 
of interest and hopefulneas. 

Th« Boctal Problems which so deeply affect the eoDditimu of life 
among the poor and working clasiieB are being studial iritii intelligent 
z«al. This is more than ever needful if the Church would laam to know 
bow to make ber miniiftrieB tell moat powerfullj for the greater eteration 
and enjoyment of life, in its spiritual and material aspects, among those 
who muHt be the special objects of her (rare. If any solid and permanent 
improvement in to be wrought, it must seek its inspiration and power in 
the direct spiritual work of widening and deepening the iiifliifvcM of 
Ohrietianity among the peopla 

The people muet firet be taught that the Gospel is the power of God 
unto salvation, and for tliie the direi-t missionary work of the Church 
should Im firxt thought of, and multiplied in every quarter. In oom|nrieon 
with otlker objects bo which the liberality oE Churchmen is deroted, it is 
Boriou^ly doubtful whether they have ever yet in any adequate measure 
realjfied their responsibility in giving the miniaterial work of the Church 
[lower and efficiency. The two princi]>al Home Aliasion AgenciaB, the 
Church Pastoral Aid Society and the Bociety for the Employment of 
Additional Curates, are etill in urgent need of increased suppmi, and 
until Churchmen reNpond with greater faithfulness and generotity to their

Tliat the social welfare and happiness are not overlooked is evidenced 
in the development of numberless educational and philanthraptc enter- 
prieee. Nothing has indicated this more cleailj than the Oxford House 
Movement, and the many endeavours made to bring the ITniveraities of 
Oxford and (.'am bridge, and our Public Schools, into practical touch with 
the wimts of the poor in London, and such-like centres of population. 

The following I'Ccoi-da will sliow, that whilst the direct Miaaionary 
claims upon the Church to minister the Gospel of Christ are OBBential 
jiiii-ts of their aims, these Missions are making practical study of the 
uuiUu-ial wants of the (icoplo, and are seeking in many successful ways to 
supply them. l)y lictive efforts, the Bishop of Rochetiter has recently

The Oxford Hoiue in Bethnal Green . — I. Object. — The Oxfbrd House is ostftblislied 

in order that Oxford meu luay take part in the social and relij^ioua work of the 
Church in East Ijondon ; that they may learn something of tlie life of the poor ; may 
try to better the condition of the working; classes as regards liealth and recreation, 
mental culture and spiritual teacldng ; and may afford an example, no far as in them 
lies, of a simple and religious life. 

The House is (a) a residence for laymen (University men or others) who can give 
their whole time, or such portion of it as they can spare from their professional 
engagements, to tho work, (b) A meeting place for those who can come down to one 
or more evenings in the week to give assistance, (r) A centre for undergraduates 
wishing to spend some portion of tho vacation in the East End. 

II. Scope of the Wofk. — {a) Cluhsfor working men and working lads, with classes 
for religious and secular instruction. (6) Lectures, (c) Mission Sei-vices. (d) Work 
done by residents for the parochial Clergy. (<?) Work done for other Societies 
and Institutions. 

III. ThA Year 1895-6. — The number of residents in the House had an average of 
twenty •eight, besides a number of evening or day workers. 

The new buildings were opened in June 1892, by tho Duke of Connanght, in the 
presence of both the Archbishops and eight Bisno|j8. They consist of a house 
for residents and visitors, and a lecture hall. Premises for the Oxford House Club 
were opened by Princess Mary of Teck on K"ovember 10, 1894. The total cost 
has been 13,500/. 

Tho Oxford House Club is a Working Men*s Club with a membership of about 350. 
In connection vdth the Club are Cricket, Rowing, and Football Clubs, Debating 
Society, Savings Bank, 'Help Myself Society, and frequent lectures, concerts, and 
evening parties.

Club there are Cricket, Rowing, Football, Athletic, and Cycling Clubs ; Debating 
Society, Dramatic Society, Savings Bank, Si(.'k Fund, Bible Class, Drawing Class, 
and other evening Classes. There are meetings and societies for members' wives and

a membership of 100 lads. 

The St. James, the Great Club, has l>eon fonned during tho past year for 
boys between the ages of 12 and 15, and numbers about SO boys. It has a strong branch 
of the Chuixjh Lads* Brigade. 

Special Club services are held once every quarter in the Parish Church of 
Bethnal Green. 

Lectures are delivered in the Lecture Hall ever)' Sunday afternoon on subjects 
chiefly of a religious nature, and are followed by discussions. 

A Branch of the London Diocesan Church Reading Union has been started, 
and a class for the study of Christian Evidence. 

Sunday-School Classes are takcm in several parishes by residents, who also give 
what help they can to the Clergy in visiting houses in tlie district, itc. 

Residents at the Oxford House are honorary secretaries of— '(1) Th<» Mansion House 

Council for the Housing of the Poor ; (2) The Charity Organisjition Committee ; 

\ (3) The -Children's Holiday Fund Committef; ; and are members of the Hoanl of 

. (Guardians and of the Committees of Managers of Church Stihools and Board Schools, 

! and visit weekly in two wards ot the London Hospital. 

I The Federation of Social Clubs, which lias its c<mtre at the Oxford House, 
\ embraces sixty clubs of working men in various parts of Loudon. The jmrpose 
I of the Federation is to encourage and assist elubs which have no political object^*, 
; and on the premises of which no alcoholic drinks are sold. A list of lecturers is

provided each year for tlie various clubs of tlic Federation. Athletics, Rowing, 
and Games, Comi)etitions, &c. are arranged between the various clubs. 

Toe-to-Tums. — These institutions, planned and originated by Mr. Buchanan, 
Vice- Principal of the House, have been established in various parts of the Eiast End. 
They consist of refreshment rooms and cafes, in connection with which are clubs 
for working men. Several of the clubs have a membership of over 600 each. 

The Limpsfield Boys' Home provides three weeks* fresh air for ailing boys sent 
by the Oxford House and the Eton and Christ Church Missions. 

The House of Shelter in Burdett Road for homeless men and women was origin- 
ated, and is still chiefly carried on, by the efforts of past and present residents 
of the Oxford House. 

On Sej)teniber 29, 1895, the Head of the House was made Rector of B<*thnal 
Green, and the large parish of St. Matthew was handed over to him by the Bishop 
to be worked from the House in addition to its other work. The numl)er of 
residents were at that date 31, to which two Assistant Clergy are added to help 
in tlie i)ari8h work. Two more clergy joined the statf in 1896. 

*The Oxford House Chronicle' (2^/. monthly) furnishes a complete record of 
the progress of the work. An Annual Report is also published containing balance 
sheets, &c. The Head of the House is the Rev. A. F. W. Ingram, to whom all 
communications should be addressed at the Oxford House, Bethnal Green, E. 

Cambridge House . — The Cambridge House was founded in the winter of 1896-7, 
in answer to the bishop of Rochester's appeal to the University to found in his Dio- 
cese a University settlement. 

The difliculty arising from Trinity having already founded its own settlement was 
surmounted by the generous offer of the Trinity settlement to be merged in a Cam- 
bridge House, provided that the work should be continued on the same basis ; and at 
a great meeting, held in the Guildhall in November 1896, the offer was gratefully 

Trinity Court, the Trinity College settlement (which has a separate existence 
from the Mission and must not be confused with it), was opened in the autumn of 
1889, five houses in the Camberwell Road being purchased by Dr. Dai ton, the 
first Head, which can be taken up as occasion requires. He also built the Trinity 
Court Hall and the wing connecting it with the house. These premises arc all to be 
purchased by the settlement as soon as the funds allow, and the price for the first 
three houses, hall, and garden is 4,003/. 

The prinuiry object of Trinity Court was to help the College Mission, but it was 
also to be a centre of social, philanthropic, and educational work for South London 
generally, and therefore oflered a hearty welcome; to all who would join loyally in the 
work, and upon these lines Cambridge Mouse will continue to work. 

During the first six years the Heads were laymen, but the system was found to be 
impracticable, and in October 1895 the prewnt Head entered into office. 

The work carried on by Trinity Court, and now continued by Cambridge House, 
may briefly be described as follows : — It is the headcpiai-ters for South London of the 
Federation of \Yorking Men's Clubs, of the Federation of Working Boys' Clubs, of the 
S.E. Connnittee of the London Playing Fields Committee, of a large district of the 
Chihlren's Country Holiday Fund, and of a battalion of the Church Lads' Brigade 

To help the Trinity College Mission the residents manage a Men's Club and a 
Boys' Club in tlu; Albany IJoad tiistrict, the Senior Lads' Club and Brigade Club in 
the New Church Road district, the two parish companies of the Church La<ls' Brigaiie 
are provided with oliicers, teaching is undert4iken in the Day and Sunday Schools, 
Bible classes are worked, and assistance is given in the administration of parish relief 
and the management of ])arisli schools. 

Outside the Mission Parish a club is worked in pne of the worst districts in London 
by members of the settlement, f;reat help is given to the District Committee of the 
C.O.S., and the residents serve as managers on several groups of Board Schobls, and 
also on School Attendance Committees. 

Satunlay evening concerts an<l a very successful gymnasium are held in the hall, 
and I'ni versify Extension Lectures have been undertaken. 

The Cambridge House endeavours to carry on, and, if possible, to extend, all the 
above general work, and hopes to be able to help other College Missions in the future

e-storcd in 1887 and 1890, and the restoration was completed in 1893 at a cost of 
early 2000/., subscribed by some 1,500 gifts and donations, mostly from the 
arish, whilst the churchyard has been laid out by the Metropolitan Gardens Asso- 
iation. The day schools have been twice enlarged and improved, whilst the 
unibor of children has increased from 600 to 1000. During the past ton years 
lir«'€ mission rooms have been opened ; one of these has been enlarged several times, 
nd once it was made twice its former size by the voluntary labours of the Men's 
luild. A second (in a district now cut off as the Parish of All Saints) lias been 
•uUed down and rebuilt to hold 400 people. In the Sunday schools and Bible 
lasses connected with the mission parish there are now over 2000 children, 
'here are guilds for men, married women, young men, and girls, and a men's 
KM-ting with about 70 members. The Sisters' Home is in Addington Square, and it 
5 hoped soon to incrense the number of the Sisters under the headship of Deaconess 
,oui!«i. There is also a branch of the G.F.S., a Band of Hope, and four Mothers' 
lev tings. Clubs for Men, Young Men, Lads*, Boys, and Factory Girls are open 
Q various j^arts of the district, and are now very greatly assisted by the latest 
<nelopment of lay work — viz. through the work which is carried on by the 
lfnil>ers of Trinity Court. The Members of Trinity Court are mostly Trinity men, 
nd each devotes a certain amount of his time to some form of work. A large hall 
as been built for Lectures. Gymnasium, &c. The College Committee, under the 
•residency of Dr. Butler, has built, at a cost of over 12,000/., a new Mission Room; 
lymnasium, and Institute. This building was finished and fully opened in 
)eceml)er 1895, the Prince of Wales i»residing at a dinner on the occasion. The 
'lergy and Menilwrs of Trinity Court would gladly welcome mor»». helpers in order 
L) carry on and increase the already large ami constantly growing work they have 
Q band.

Diocesan Committeeg. — With a view to bring individual Dioceses into practical 

co-operation with the Central Executive, Diocesan Connnittees have been formed, and 

i^sL'it locally in the general administration of the Society. The following Dioceses 

I ^'ave conslituted Committees for this purpose, i. c. Bangor, Durham, Chester, Ely, 

j Lithfielii, Llandaff, Livei-pool, Newcastle, Peterborough, Kipon, Rochester, St. Albans, 

' St. Asaph, St. Davids, Salisbuiy, Southwell, Truro, Wakefield, and Sodor and Man. 

M under the * Great Towns Scheme * local committees have been elected in the 

following places : Leeds, Manchejiter, Portsmouth, The Potteries, Brighton, Blackburn, 

Birmtnghain, Bolton, and Xottingham. 

roninnmications should be made to the Rev. Paul Petit, M.A., Secretary, Albany 
Buildings, 39 Victoria Street, Westminster. The Board meets on tlie second Tuesday 
in each month (except August, September, and October), at 2.30. 


F(»rNDEi> by the late Archbishop Tait, 1857, to supplement existing parochial machinery 
a carrying out the Home Mission work of the Church. 

The Diocese of London, conterminous with the county of Middlesex, contains a 
K)2>ulation of about 3,500,000, increasing at the rate of some 30,000 annually. 

The general principle of the Society's work has been to find openings for Church 
xtension in parishes where subdivision is desirable. A new district is practically 
>riiied and placed under the charge of a Mission Clergyman, whose aim is to develop the 
ork of the Church, for the most part in temporary buildings, until provision can be 
lade for the erection of a permanent church. 

Satnlt of Past Work. — The total number of consecrated churches whose erection has 
[M»n promoted by the work of the Home Mission is now 62. The present aggregate 
ojiulation of the 62 parishes is upwards of 400,000, and has the supervision and pastonil 
ire of more than 100 Clergymen. 

Work in 1895. — Twenty-six missionary Clergymen were labouring in 25 districts 
1 30, 000 people), each district having its own temporary church or mission building. 

Finanoe. — The income in 1895 was 4824/. 5*. 7rf., which, with a balance of 
71/. I2s. Sii. from 1894 made 5,395/. 18.^. 5d, The exi>enditure was 4,759 ISs. llrf.

HIS Fund was established in the year 1873 under the guidauce of Bishop Solwyn, and 
tie movement arose out of certain inquiries instituted in the year 1870 into the spiritual 
onditiou of the pottery and mining districts of North Statfordshire. The distinct 
bjeet of the Fund is to assist by annual grants the employment of Curates and Lay 
lel{>«rs throughout the whole of Nortli Statlordshire. 

At the beginning of the year 1896 grants were voted in aid of the stipends of 
assistant Curates and 2 Lay Helpers. The total amount of grants voted was 705/., 
rhich inclutles 65/. paid by the Diocesan Church Extension Society on the re- 
omniendation of the Administrators of this Fund. 

The income for 1896 was 516/. 7s. 2d,, including subscriptions and donations, 
133/. Is. 2d.; Church offertories, 261/. 12^. Id. 

The Rev. C. D. Rae, Silverdale Rectory, Staffordshire, acts as Hon. Secretary, to 
rhom communications should be made. 


"his Society was formed more than fifty years ago to assist Incumbents of overgrown 
r s'^'ittort'd jiarishes in providing Curu.tes. Its grants are confined to the Diocese of 
\x<.'ti T ; some preferring to give aid for their own Dio.M s«^ specially. 

Tf:e sum voted in grants last year was 973/. for thirty-four parishes. 

Thf" general principles and working of the Society are explained by reference to the 
'.lowing extract from its Rules: *That the Committee make annual grants of money 
•wards the maintenance of additional Clerg>'men in those parishes ami districts which 
M mi'st in want of assistance, strict regard baing had in all cases to the right of the

LIVKEPOOL. — Liverpool Church of England Scripture Beaderg* Society. 

(Office: 13 Commercial Court, 11 Lord Street, Liverpool.) 

Established in the year 1852 for the purposes of employing Scripture Readers, 
under the RU|)erintendeuce of the Clergy, to work in the city of Liverpool and its 
neighbourhood. The work is carried on ehiefly in the poorest and most densely popu- 
lated parishes of the city. The following extracts from the Re|>ort recently issued wUl 
he of general interest : Total visits, 156,692; sick visits, 15,645; Bible readings, 
58,138 ; men visited, 101,750 ; meetings beld, 8994 ; attendance, 420,137 ; hours 
spent in work, 78,776 ; evening hours, 26,783. Much of the most valuable work 
cannot be tabulated. The visits to men resulting in largely attended Bible classes 
and mission services are a special feature, and niiiny Sunday- school teachers, oi)en- 
air speakers, regular church attendants and communicants, are thus won over. The 
work amongst children is interesting and extensive, nnd is carried on in the Ragged 
Schools, Bauds of Hope, at Cliildren's S<Tviccs, Scripture Unions, &c. The Readers 
meet the Superinten<liug Clergyman weekly for Bible study and practical conference 
as to the week's work. 

The above figures, which represent part only of the work done, implya very great 
deal of hard and earnest work. The statistics represent the labours of 50 Readers, 
and include the work of the Special Readers to lod^in^^-houses and workyards, and 
of the Lay evangelist, but not the work of the Reader to Seamen, who works in con- 
nection with the Mei-sey Missions. The total staff is 51 full-time Readers. Between 
20 and 30 meetings are held weekly during the dinner-hour in the workyards, and are 
largely attended. This branch of the work is most important, and is growing in 
niagnitude ofid interest. 

The income of the Society for 1895 was 10,609/. 17^*. 9^/., including legacies, 
6,008/. 1*. 9d. ; Aiuiuities, 2,i86/. 7s. 9d., including legac)', 2,000/.

The llothera' Union was started in ISiS in the Winchi'ster Diocese. It became 
Dioceifan Organixation in 18S7, working witli the following objects : 

(1) To uphold the sanctity of rnarringc. 

(2) To awaken in mothers of all classes a sense of their great responsibili^ in th 
training of their hoys luid girls, 

(B) To organise in every place a bnnil of mothers who will unite in pnycT, and see

Tbs Young Men's Friendly Society is an attempt to solve in some measure that 
which is really, perhaps, the gravest practical problem now pressing upon the Cleroy 
Ukd Cliurch workers—how to win and how to retain the lads and vouug men of the 
nation. Founded in 1879, the Society has now about 400 branches and affiliated 
locieties in England, Scotland, Ireland, and the Colonies, and 25,000 Associates and 
Members. Its object is to help young men to lead Christian lives aud to promote purity 
tnd temperance ; befriend young men leaving home, and protect them from evu 
influences ; promote thrift and independence, a healthy tone of litemture and amuse « 
ment, and co-operation amongst institutions existing for kindred objects. 

The Society consists of Associates and Members. Members are young men of good 
character, of the age of 13 and upwards. 

The work of the Society is done chiefly through its branches and affiliated societies, 
which the Council desires to increase. They aim at having either a branch, an affiliated 
aociety, or Associates in every parish, in order, more especially, that the system of the 
commendation of Members leaving homo to an Associate in the place of their faturt) 
rwidence may be more efficiently carried out. 

Further information will be supplied by J. W. Powell, Central Secretary, Church 
House, Dean's Yard, Westminster, S.W. 


T^is is a parochial Society under the direction of the Clergy. Its object is to help all 
cusses of men, both married and single, to lead holy lives, by banding them together 
with appropriate Rules of Life, and assignin^^ to thorn Church work of various kinds. De- 
partments of work are strengthened by affiliation to the Church Temperance and White 
Cross Le;igue Societies, an arrangement which obviates the ne(!essity for sei«irate branc^hes, 
thus simplifying parochial machiuory. Thei"o are now 91 branches, three of which are 
in the Army, two in the West Indies, one in S<mth Africa, tlireo in Canada, seven in 
the United States, and Diocesan Organisations in the Dioceses of liipoii, Oxford, and 
rhichcstor. The Society is also represented in 3000 parishes by a ' Helper,' to whom 
soldiers are commended from the Army on dis(:har«ie, and this nuinbor is daily increasing. 
A definite alliance has been formed with the Church ImW Drigade, so that lads may 
join the Men's Help Society when too old for the liri^'ade, while the Little Brothers* 
M. H. S. Guild drafts boys too old for the Guild into the C. L. 13., in parishes where a 
company exists.

TtiiB Society, formally eanctioned by the Church of Ireland, was established in 1818 for 
the promotion of Scriptuml education amongst the I Hah -speaking popnlstion. In 
oddition to its educational and evangelistic work, which forni the chief objects of thr 
Society, many parishes in Ireland are mainly dependent upon it for the maintenance of 
Churches andSchools. In the Island ofAchiU.offthB west coast of Irc-land, it has lielprd 
to maintain two resident Clergy, four scliools, and other aUKlliaiy agencies, with a Churcli 
population of over 500 people, chielly converts. The Society also supports an itinerant 
MusioDer, who works amonf^t thr Irish population in I.ani^ahire. 

At several important centn^s in Ireland, and also in Lancashire, periodical examina- 
tions are held, payments made, anil premiums given according to results. The examina- 
tions are confined mainly to reading, translating, and rejieatirig from memory selected 
portions of Holy Scripture in Irish aiid English. By niiians of this nuignc system thon- 
aands of Irish Roman Catholics receive a measaro of Scriptural education. On-ing t( 

inadequacy of funds, several most impiortant bmnchca of tins Socirty's work are seriously

This Society was eatabiinhed about eighteen years ago, with the intention of bringing 
t}id ministrations of the Church to a very large number of persons employed in canal and 
nver traffic, whose spiritual interests had up to that time been little cared for. The 
Work is chiefly evanselistic, and is carried on at different mission stations, placed at 
different points on the important canals which traverse the Diocese. Lay MissionerB 
\xvt during the last year been actively working at Wolverhampton, Aldersloy 
Junction, Stoke, Tipton, and Humberts Lane, Lillei^hall. The work of the Society hxui 
led to the erection of several permanent mission rooms, which haVe become the centres 
of lystematic services. 

The work at all the stations has been full of encouragement. The larger part of the 
Xissioners' time is occupied in visiting from boat to boat, so that the Gospel is literally 
carried to the people. The result of this mission work has been a large accession to 
the Church of persons coming forward for Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Com* 
munion. Considerable help has also been given by the encouragement of wholesome 

All communieations should be addressed to the Hon. Sec* the Rev. W. T. B.

The work of this Society has been carried on for many years by a Lay Missionei*) 
who visits the wherry men and tlioir families, provides them with library bags, and 
occasionally he holds open-air services, or conducts services on board the wherries* 
There can be no question as to the great importance of the work, when we remember 
that a class of men is reached who, owing to the roving nature of their lives, must 
otherwise to a large extent be without any spiritual help. 

Communications should bo addressed to the Hon. Secretary, W. J. Nutman, Esq*!

This Society was established in 1877, and has ever since been doing a really Useful 
work among a class of men, considerable in number, employed in the construction of 
railways, docks, reservoirs, and canals, &c. throughout the country. Previous to the 
organisation of this Society tliese men were 8y8t4;matically neglected, being, by the very 
conditions of their lives, outside parochial reach ; things are now changed, and over 300 
grants have already been made to clergymen in different parishes where navvies have 
Iwen working. On almost every large public Work there is now a mission room, a 
missionary, day, night, and Sunday schools, services, prayer and temperance meetings^ 
Jtc; over 100,000 navvy letters are circulated every year. The Mission is conducted 
upon Church principles : the Missionary is placed under the superintendence of the 
Vicar of the parish, and a shortened form of the Church Service is used in the mission 
room. The Society employs two clerical secretaries and two chaplains, who organise 
the work and superintend over 40 Missionaries. There is an enormous field for much- 
needed work amongst these wandering thousands of men both at home and abroad, and 
some very large works are in contemplation in England. Temperance Societies have 
been formed, and over 10,000 pledges taken. Mothers' Meetings and Sick Clubs have 
besn carried on, and a Christian Excavators' Union has been formed with over 650 
members. The Missionaries of the Society have been occupied, during the past year, in 
connection with the following among other works^/. e. i-iancashirc, Derbyshire, and 
■East Coast Railway, Bradford Water Works, the new M. 8. and L. London Extension 
Bailway, large Docks and Reservoirs near London, Plymouth, &c. — and in many places 
ID South Wales. 

With the help also of voluntary workers the Society is now manning over 50 mission 
stations in England and Wales.

and middle clasiieB are engngrd in the good work, and the samti nanilwr of the ohildrn 
of the iKKir are thus brought in touch wich them. There are members of this MisuM 
in every county in Engfand, also in Suotland, Ireland, Wales, many parts of tht 
Continent, in Aain, Africa, America, and Australia ; and from all the gmrislies alEliated 
to the MiKHiou ttatimony is borne to the joy and brightness brouglit by this means hM

TiiBRE is every reason to hope thiit this Evangelistic Agency, if continoalty 
pervaded by Christ's great love for the lost, and His intense desire to seek 
and save, will prove a spiritual energy hitherto unfelt in arousing the 
ungodly to the knowledge and love of Christ. 

That PaJ>x:hial Missions, carefully conceived and prayerfully preached, 
have proved vital in arousing the ungodly to a sense of sin, ia beyond 
question. Then, in addition to Parochial Missions properly so called, the 
following reports record also various efforts of a similar character. 




The Uhuruli Army is, in ita essenc*. a Working PeO])!e's Mission to Working 
People. The work began in a Very small Way, but has tncraasod so largely aa to 
necessitate its being divided into spfcinl departments. 

The Bvuigelittia Dspartnieiit siiperiii lends the placing of Evangelists and 
Mission Kurst-8 under the Clergy in various |mrLshes in the IFnited Kingdom. At 
the present time these number upwards of 400. 

Under tbia department are also inc1u<led Cotportnge, Lantern Missions, the 
Visiting of Public-Houses and of Lodging Houses, Missions among Fruit-pickers, 
Hop-pickers and Haymakers during the summer months ; the working of Bvangetisls 
under Missionaries in India ; a. Samaritan Fund for sick offii;ei's, a Special Dutrea 
Fund for the poor, and a Bible Reading and Prayer Union.

General Okganisations — continued. 

The Training Home Department superintends the obtaining, selecting, and train- | 
ing of working men and women as Evangelists and Mission Nurses. The Examiner 
for the men, before they receive their commission, is the Ven. the Archdeacon of 
London ; while the Rev. Preb. Reynolds, Chief Diocesan Inspector of Schools, 
examines the Mission Nurses. 

The Social Department has the charge of eight Labour Homes in London and 
15 in the jirovinccs. Labour Homes for Souths and for Women, a Ijaundry and 
Home for Women, a Receiving Home and a Classifying Home for Women, a Free 
Dispeni^ary for Women and Children, a cheap Food DupOt, Lodging Homes for Men 
and for Women, Market Garden Homes, a Test and Training Farm for Emigration, 
an Emigration Agency at Montreal, a Boarding Home for men who have passed 
through the Labour Homes and obtained situations, a Samaritan Office and Labour 
Registry in London for the benefit of clerks who are out of situations, three Coffee 
Taverns, where Evangelists and their wives are trained for temperance work. 
Classified Rescue Homes for Women have also been built at Hendon, through the 
generosity of one of the honorary members of the staff. The systematic visitation 
of Casual Wards, Workhouses, Refuges, and Hospitals, also comes into this depart- 
ment, besides the Samaritan Clothing Dep6t for the poor, Fresh-air Fund, a Needle- 
work Guild, Juvenile Brigade, Associates' Union, &c. The sound, unique, and 
valuable nature of the social work in these Labour Homes has received the direct 
iipproval of the Prison Commissioners, the Local Government Board, the Charity 
Organisation Society, a large number of Discharged Piisoners' Aid Societies, Prison 
Governors and Chaplains, &c., while many Boards of Guardians make yearly grants 
to the Society in respect of peraons taken off the rates and turned into ratepayers. 
During 1896 four Lodging Houses have been opened — three in London, and one in 
I>-eds, while arrangements are in progress for the opening of several more throughout 
the country. 

The Van Department has exactly doubled itself in size during 1896. There are 
at present at work 32 Colportage and Mission Vans in the Dioceses of Canterbury, 
Norwich, Wakefield, Manchester, Oxford (2), Durham (2), Exeter, Belfast, St. 
Asaph, Carlisle (2), Hereford, Lichfield, Lincoln, Newcastle, Ri{>on, Rochester, 
Southwell, Truro, Chichester, St. Albans, Chester (2), Worcester (2), and Ely (4). 
These vans, each manned by three earnest evangelists, travel about in their respective 
Dioceses, summer and winter, holding seven or 14 day Missions in different 
parisheH, with the warm approval of the Bishop, and at the invitation of the 
Incumbent, and at the same time scattering broadcast healthy and attractive 
reatiing at very low prices. 1,500/. worth of this literature was sold and given 
iway by these vans last year. The number of these vans, it is expected, will be 
doubled in the course of the present year. A new van, fully equipped, costs 100/. 

The Publication Department is steadily making way. The sale of the ' Church 
Army Gazette,' a halfpenny paper for working people, has reached a circulation of 
over 75,000 weekly, an increase of 50,000 within the last five years. A Sheet 
Almanack is issued yearly. Cheap Church literature, in the form of tracts, books, 
and \d. tales, &c. , with Evangelistic and Church teaching, is sold and distributed 
throughout the country. 

The Financial Department. — A very large amount comes directly from the 
Tunds of the very poor towards the maintenance of the work in their midst. The 
' Church Army Gazette * exhibits a net profit centrally of over 1,500/. a year ; out of 
this is paid the salary of the few members of the Staff who receive salaries, and of 
the oflSce. Most of the work at headquarters is honorary, and is estimated by those 
well qualified to judge as worth about 3000/. in money.

The Bishop has appointed a Diocesan Missioner, who will now he responsible for 
orgBniaing and giving direction and encouragFmcnt to Evangelistic work. As this 
movement has but very recently assumed practical development, it is not feasible

the Bishop is president The Kev. Canon Bodini^n acts as Diocesan MissioDcr, and 
is assisted by twenty others holding the >.iiecial authority of the Bishop. The 
general object of the Mission is the ■evangelisation of the people, and the revival

is done ;— (1] liy holding Parochial Missions and other Evangelistic Services. 
(2) By essUling the Farocliial Clergy in carrying on the definite instruction of tho^f 
who have been awakened hy menns of the Mission. (3) By arranging Seasons of 
Devotion and Instruction, such as Quiet Days or Retreats, either for Clergy or laity. 
and by preaching courses of Sermons, es|«cially in Advent and Lent. In fulhlnient 
of these objects, several Hetreats and Quiet Days wero held for the Clergy in 
the Diocese. Devotional Servicea for the laity were arranged, a number of Lenten 
and Advent courses of addresses were (liven, end nt least sixteen Parochial Mission-' 
were preached. One of the agencies adopted by the Council for carrying on its work 
is the proprietorshiji and imhlicnlioii of the 'tlhurch Evangelist' newspaper.

The Missioner reports that thei-e has been ^n increased desire in the Diocese for sus- 
tained missions of ten days' or more duration. Eight such missions were held 
during the year. Devotional days were arranged at several centres for Teachers 
in elementary schools, Church workers and Communicants, and the wives and 
daughters of the Clergy. There has been a very considerable recognition of the 
value of Lenten Instructions, and a very large number of the Clergy in the Diocese 
co-operated in the movement. The subjects selected for last Lent were * The Prin- 
ciples of Divine Service as illustrated in Morning and Evening Prayer.' The sub- 
jects of these Lenten Instructions are selected by the Bishop, and secure systematic 
teaching upon Church doctrine and practice.

Parochial Missions and other services, especially in country parishes, with a view 
to the conversion of the ungodly and the revival and deepening of spiritual life 
throughout the Diocese. In union with the Society there are 19 members and 31

At the Diocesan Conference of 1^93 the late Bishop expressed his earnest desire for 
the formation of such a Society in the Diocese, and has since taken practical steps 
' for its organisation by the official recognition of a number of Clerjry united together 
for evangelistic work as 'The Rochester Cathedral Society of Mission Preachers.* 
With a view to place this movement upon a permanent footing, and to extend its 
useluluess, the Bishop has just sanctioned the appointment of the Rev. R. G. Cope 
as Cathedral Missioner attached to the Society.

In the year 1890 tlie Diocesan Conference considered the importance of making 
some provision for the systematic encouragement of Parochial Missions, and of such- 
like endeavours to arouse and deepen spiritual life among the people. An organisa- 
tion has l)een formed under the direction of a Diocesan Missioner appointed by the 
Bishop, and aims at carrying out its objects by the holding of Parochial Missions, 
Short Missions, Visits, and Ilevisits ; Visits of a Missionary character from Saturday 
to Monday, Addresses to Men,, to Members of Guilds, special courses of sermons 
through Advent and Lent, and so forth. The Diocesan Missioner and his assistant 
were actively engaged during the past ye^r. Retreats, Quiet Days, and such-like de-

e subject of constituting an organisation for the furtherance of Parochial

«ent Diocesan Conference. Acting upon the resolutions which were formally 
erl, the Bishop has appointed six Diooesan MissionerH, who have generally 
sed and directed the Mission work of the Diocese. Under the directions of these 
ners, Quiet Days for the Clergy and Laity have been conducted, and several 
lial Missions preached in different parts of the Diocese.

t a parish to unknown, and occasionally unworthy Priests in the 
e of the Vicar from illness or other causes, as well as during the 
:apy vacancy of a benefice. To obviate such an evil the Diocese of 
iry devised a plan by which a certain number of Clergy should

•ary services, the remainder of their time being given for the assist-

The following is but a brief description of exceptional efforts, inde- 
pendent of distinct parochial connection, to bring the non-churchgoing 
population within hearing of the Gospel. It is not from any mere desire 
for publicity that these efforts are noticed, but the success which hns evi- 
dently attended them, may suggest and encourage the adoption of similar 
means elsewhere. 


The Bishop ot Kipon Holds services in ditterent centres of Leeds in each year 
for men only, the object of which is to induce men who are not in the habit 
of attending any place of worship to come and hear the story of the Life and 
Passion of the Lord Jesus Christ. Tliere are usually two services, both of which 
are held on Good Friday evening. One of these is always at the Town Hall, and 
for the last six years has had an average attendance of 3000. Recently the 
demand for tickets has been so gi-eat that a service is held on the Thursday 
evening also in one of the suburbs. Men have been known to come from Hull 
and Manchester to attend these eervioes, although the original intention is that 
they should be for inhabitnnts of Leeds. The Committee are desirous that similar 
services should be organised for women, to be held in Advent. * The second U held 
in one of the outlying districts; e.g. the last five have been held respectively at 
Burmantofts, Holbeck, Armley, Hunslct, and Roundhay ; these have also been largely 
attended. The Bishop is assisted in the work by a large committee of upwards of 
250 working-men, representing nearly every parish in the town. The meetings are 
not advertised by bills or posters, nor is any notice inserted in the local newspapers. 
The invitations arc given by personal solicitation from members of the committee, 
each of whom is supplied with a large quantity of tickets. The addresses are 
illustrated by limelight views thrown on a large screen. The results so far have 
been most encouraging. One of the most pleasing of them has been the kindly 
relationship which has been established between the Bishop and his large stafif of 
working-men helpers. 

Dioeeie of Wakefield.— EVAyGELISTIC 8BBVICE8. 

An endeavour has of late years been made, with considerable succe,ss, to reach 
the habitual Church neglecters in the city of Wakefield ; a course of Evangelistic 
Services has been held on Sunday evenings during the winter, in the Circus, at 8.15, 
lasting an hour. 

The Vicar, Archdeacon Donne, has, as a rule, given the address, taking for his 
subject some Bible uan*ative or parable, and illustrating his teaching by a series of 
pictures displayed upon a large scn^cn by limelight. The services have been 
strictly simple, consisting of a short prayer, and of hymns thrown upon the sheet 
that all may see and sing them. The Bishop has shown his sympathy with this 
effort by personally taking part in it ; the numbers who have attended have been 
very large, and justify the hope and belief that much good has been done. 

A fine hall hns recently Iwcn opened in connection with a group of new 
School buildings, and the services are now transferred from the Circus to tliis 
hall. They are of the same simple character as before, only without the limelight 
and picture illustrations.

Thesr Missions are now liecoming more generally recognised aa neadAU. aad ^Tac- 
tical methoda for reaching various classes of peraons who for one reason or another 
do not seem to come under immediate parochial minis tations. In sevetnl Dioceses 
Mission-rnns have been acquired, and ara worked under the direct sanctlou. of tlu 
Btxhop, principnlly through tho agency of the Church Army. This is the oue, for 
instance, in the following Dioceses : Canterbury, Durham, Norwich, Wakefield, Man- 
chester, Oxford, Exeter, St. Asaph, Chester, and Carlislo. 

It is too early to measure the practical success of this movement, but tJie records of 
work done are so far very encouraging. 

Missions similar in character, hut worked hj the Diocese independently of other 
u^ncios, have met with very successful results in the Di<<cc3es of Canterbury. Lichfield, 
^ Alluuis, Salisbnry, Gloucester and Bristol, and St. Davids. As an illuatntiou 
of their general methods, thv following record b given. 

Wiooheattr Diocesan Itinerant Miiaion.— This Mission was set on foot by the Hants 
Diocesan Society in IS84, with the object of providing spiritual ministrations for the 
hoppers, navvies, shonmen, drovi'ra, gipsies, nnd other occupants of vana, tents, nnd 
movable habitations, who attend the fairs and travel tlirough the Oiocaec in order to 
obtain a living. The Itinerant Missioner visits the fairs, hop-gurdens. New Forest, 
commons, wooila, canals, nnil works in progioss where any of his wandering flock are 
likely (o he found, and ministers to their spiritual wants, very often taking poor sink 
and diseased peo|)1e to a place of shelter. lie travels about in the diocesan van, and 
one of his own of lighter build, in order to minister to his people. Tliero are always in 
the Dioeoso abont 3000 travellers. In the bop-picking si^ason about 20,000 picker", 
and in addition to these we have had 1000 navvies working at Southaniptcn Docks, 
SOO at Portsmouth DiU'k Extension, and 2U0 in tho Isle of Wight.

The pointed attention given by the recent York Diocesan Synod to the 
subject of a wider recognition of Lay Help sufficiently emphasises the 
desire of the Church to encourage and assign a proper place to the 
ministrations of the Laity. It becomes more and more increasingly 
evident that there is a growing necessity and an ever- widening scope for 
the assistance which the duly qualified Laity can give, and it is a matter 
of great moment that such work should receive the fullest recognition 
and direction of the Church. 



This As8ociatiou has been formed with a view to unite lay persons in active 
co-operation in the work of the Church. Laymen and women, over eighteen years 
of age, being communicants, and willing to do some specified Church work 
voluntarily, may be enrolled as members on the recommendation of the Incumbent 
of the parish in which the work is to be cjirried on. 

Members may be enrolled as (1) Readera, being laymen duly licensed by the 
Bishop upon certain conditions to assist the Clergy in all ministrations not restricted 
I to those in Holy Orders, and (2) Lay Helpers, male and female, engaged in some 
specified Chiu*ch work. 


The Order consists of laymen who read the Lessons in Church if required ; who 
conduct or assist in conducting Mission Services ; or who render such general help 
to the Clergy as is not already organised under the head of Choral Unions or Sunday 
School Teachers' Associations. They r«ceive a formal licence from the Bishop on 
his receiving a recommendation from their Incumbent, signed by two trustworthy 
laymen and countersigned by the Rural Dean, on which a form of assent to the 
teaching of the Church of England is forwarded for their signature. A meeting is 
held once a year at Deeside, and new members are admitted at a service held before 
that meeting. The Order numbers at present nearly seventy members. Communi- 
cations should be addressed to the Clerical Hon. Secretary, the Rev. W. H. L. 
Cogswell, and the Lay Hon. Secretary, Mr. J. Percival Gamon, S. Werburgh St., 


The object of this Association, which was originated by Bishop Lightfoot in 
1881, is to further the organisation of voluntary Lay Help throughout the Diocese. 
At present there are three classes of agents receiving the formal licence of the 
Bishop: (1) Lay Evangelids, whose work is carried on, under the direction of a 
Ruridecanal Committee, in various parts of the Deanery to which they belong, in 
accordance with a plan arranged quarterly ; (2) Lay Readers, whose work is 
confined to the parish of the Clergyman by whom they have been nominated ; and 
(3) Testers, qualified by experience and technical training to increase the efl&ciency 
of religious teaching in Sunday schools and Bible classes, by visiting various centres 
ill the Diocese. In all cases the uouiiuations must be approved by the Diocesan

is 40 EvanitalisU ana 9S Readers, An annual social gathering of the mofn^an ^ 
the Association is held at Auckland Castle.

Charch by honse-to-house visitation, teaching in night schools, giving enconrage- 
ment to workmen's clubs, holding evangelistic services, servioes in mission rooms,

of the Diocese to ammge for the previous examination in certain fixed sulgeots of 
•persons applying to be admitted to the office of licensed Lay Reader. Steady progrcas

Bishop in the Cathedral on the last Friday in April in each year. There are now^ 
nearly 2000 enrolled Lay Helpers. And 118 Lay Readers have been admitted to 
their office by the Bishop.

Diocese. Membership is restricted to men only, and the number of enrolled members 
now exceeds 6000. 

In the past, as in former years, the Association has carried out its programme of 
Services and Lectures as follows : (1) S^Hicial Services in the Crypt of St. Pauls, 
followed by Meetings in the Chapter House, with lectures or ^pers on Missionary 
Work, Scripture Evidences, Church History, and other subjects. (2) A Special 
Service under the dome of St. Paul's on the Monday before Lent. (8) An Annual 
Day of Prayer and Meditation in St. Paul's Cathedral on the Saturday before Passion

DioCESAS OnGANisATiONa — eoMixtud. 

To this AuocUUon is in a great measure dae the development of the schsme for 
the anuual training of Lay Readera From every diocese in England and Scotland, by 
a course of instmction Hud residence for a fortnight within the walla of Keble 
College, Oiford, or Selwyn College, Cambridge, doring the Long Vacation. From 
forty to Hfty Riders annually avail themselves of thie privilege, and many are glad 
to repeat theit visit for a second and third time, appreciating to the full not only the 
o[iportunity of hearing able theological lectures, sermons, and addresses, but perhaps 
ntill more the advant^e of miii^jline with others engaged in similar work, exchanging 
ideas, forming new friendahipx. and breathing for & time ■ new atmospheie away 
from the business of oidinary life. This work is carried on by a 'Beaden' Board' 
separately constitaled for the purpose. 

During the year there have been further admission! to the order of Diocesan 
Readers, many of whom are doing valuable work in the Diocese. The Readen 
admitted under the old regulations (1^73-^^) number 82 ; Readers admitted under 
the new regulations (1891-tij: Diocasau, 28 ; Parochial, 79 ; Associated Readen, 6S. 
Information on all matters connected with the nomination, eiamination, admission, 
iic., of Diocesan or Parochial Readers in the Diocese of London, can be obtained from 
the Hon. Secretary of the Readers' Board, Everard A. Ford, Esq^., as above. 


(1) The object of the Associstion is to unite Chnrch workers for pnrpoces of 
devotion and counsel, to promote instmction, and to extend lay work in the Church. 
(2) The Association consists of lay pcraons, being communicants, who are willing 
to assist in some branch of parochial work with the sanctinii of the Incumbent of 
the jiarish. (3) The Annual Meetingis held in Manchester in May, when the officers 
are elected and the Treasurers and Secretaries present their reports. An Evening 
Service with sernmn is held in the Cithcdral on or about St. Luke's Day, with a 
united choir. No subscription is reiiuireJ of nienibers, but members are at liberty 
to subscribe if they winh to do so. Curds of membership are rc3cwed each year in 
September, The number of members is 3,903. 

Chnreh Beading Bmneli of tlie Lay Helpen' Aiiooiatioii, — This Branch has 
been formed with the view of encouraging the study of Holy Scripture, the Prayer 
Book, Church History, and kindred subjects. A suf^sted ayllabns of subjects for 
the season 1895-6 and list of books have been issued, and lectures and classes are being 

For iiifomiation address the Rev. II. E^ltnonds, St. Alban's Vic., Rochdale. 

;nis^il the imiiortance of organising 
ummittcc his been ap|ioiiited to take 
steps to give practical ofTect to this recognition, under the dii-ectiou of the Biahop. 


Formed in 1880. The Association is cirryiii}; on a valuahle work by the holding 
of mission services in the most papulous centi'cs of the Diocese. Apjilicaiits for 
Readers' licences are examined in certain branches of theological study, and the issue 
of tlie licence is de]>cudent upon the result of the candidate s examination. Associa- 
tions have been formed in six Rural Deanuries, and there are now 6S Licensed 
Readers, but 7 Candidates were down for eiamination on Nov. 24, at Kipon. 
It ia gratifying to notice that although the Society was naturally somewhat weakened 
by the creation of the Diocese of Wakclield, the number of Lieenseil Readers ia well 
maintained. All applications for Readers' licences are referred by the Bishop to the 
Kxecutive Council of the Assw^iation, and are examined by the Ven. Archdeacon 
Waugh, the Bishop's Examiner, who has is-iued a list of subjects in which they will 
be examined, and to the successful candidates the llishop will issue liis licence. 
Arrangements have also been made uudci' which the Association acts as the Bishop'a 
I Registrar with reference to the licences to sti^iendiary Scripture Readers. Thesa

licences are issued on the nomination of the Vicar of the parifth in rcs|)ect of a parti- 
cular engagement ; on the termination of the engagement the licence is to l)e given up 
to be cancelled. Every new engagement needs a new licence. The organisation of 
Lay Help in Church work in the Diocese is advancing steadily by means of the 
Association. The Executive Council has arranged to offer grants annually of «/. 10*. 
each to four Readers, to enable them to attend the annual course of training at 
Oxford. Four Readers availed themselves of this opportunity during the present 

As the result of a Conference with the Bishop, the Council are about to issue 
to all Licensed Readers, on payment of a deposit of 10«., subject to its being withdrawn 
by the Committee on ceasing to be a Licensed Reader in the Diocese, a silver-gilt 
Biadge susixrnded round the neck by a dark-blue ribbon from 3 to 4 inches wide. This 
is to be worn only when officiating. 

Address to the Hon. Secretary, W. Gelder, Esq., Hambleton View, Knaresborough. 


Founded 1880. Reconstituted 1892. The object of the Association is expressed 
in the following resolution agreed to by the Committee appointed to consider the 
subject when the Association was founded in 1880 : ' That it is desirable to organise 
in the Diocese of Rochester a body of laymen of all classes (under the Bishop), to 
assist the Clergy — especially those of poor and populous parishes — in various branches 
of their parochial work.* Under the new constitution both men and women are ad- 
mitted to membership of the Association. The members are enrolled in Ruridecanal 
Unions, and must be communicants of the Church of England. The enrolled mem- 
bers consist of (1) Licensed Lay Readers, and (2) Those who without being Licensed 
Lay Readers are engaged in some definite Church work. Licences are granted by the 
Bishop to Lay Readers recommended to him by the Incumbents of the Diocese, and 
\ approved by him after examination or otherwise as duly qualified for their office. 
I Persons wishing to obtain a licence should write direct to the Bishop of the Diocese. 
I The duties of Readers are confined to the parishes in which (with the ]>ermission of 
the Incumbent) they have been licensed to officiate. A communicant wishing to join 
the Association as an unlicensed member should apply to the Incumbent of the 
parish. The three fundamental rules of the Association are : (1) to be a regular 
communicant of the Church ; (2) to undertake some definite work of the Church ; (3) 
to pray regularly for the Association. Each of the 19 Deaneries of the Diocese is 
represented on the Council by a Ijayman elected by the enrolled members of the 
Deanerj'. This I^y Representative is also the Ruridecancil Secretary. 

There are 142 licensed members, and over 5000 unlicensed memlKjrs of the 
Association at work in the Diocese. 

Office of the Association, 49 Parliament Street, Westminster, S.W. ; S. C. 
Laj.idge, Esq., Hon. Registmr. 


This Association is the outcome of the i-eport of a Coiuniittee of the Diocesan 
Conference, and its object is to unite communicant members of the Church in de- 
finite work for the Church under the superintendence of the Bishop and Clergy of 
the Diocese, such as to (1) undertake Bible or other classes for instruction ; (2) teach 
I m the schools ; (3) sing in the choir ; (4) conduct or assist at children's services in 
' schools or mission rooms ; (5) conduct cottage lectures or services in mission rooms ; 
(6) help to bring people to attend the services ; (7) read to the sick, and make them- 
selves generally useful in rendering the Church etlicieut. 

Apply to the Hon. Diocesan Secretary, Louis Samson, Esq., Scotchwell, Haver- 


Under the sanction and direction of the Bishop, there is in this Dioces*^ a 
.systematic recognition and use of lay service. There are at present sixty-six I^y 
Readers. The rule is to admit such ]>ersons to their oflice at a special service, ut 
wlii<:h the Bishop is present to deliver the licence. Each Reader is nominated by the

It will be readily aamitted that tlie training of Lay Help is a very e&sential part of it^ 
efficient organisation, l^he personal charauter ana mental (lualitications must be con- 
sidered in the choice and employment of those who are officially aHsociateil with the 
Oieiigy in their pastoral work. That this necessity is not overlooked, but is becoming 
year by yeai* more widely recognised, is one of tlie most hoimful assurances that the 
Chureh will be efficiently aided in her ministries by L^iy agencies, increasing in number, 
intellectual quallAcations, and practical skill. The following are brief descriptions of 
eaditiDg provisions for the attainment of these objects. 

CHVBCH TBAIKIHG COLLEQE 70B LAY WOBKSBS.—This institution, established 
in 1889 by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, proviclcs instruction and 
training for men who desire to become paid lay workers for the Church, as l^y Evangel- 
inta, Sorlpture Beaders, ko. The premises consist of four houses in Commercial Road^ 
Stepney, with coasideiteble oatbuildings attached ; in these, space has been found for a 
ehapel, Hbnupy (which also serves as a lecture-room), dining-room, recreation-rooms, and 
bedroom aoeommodation for twenty-five resident students. The College certificate is 
given after one year's residence, in three terms. Students are admissible from town or 
'coontry pariihes. A special welcome is given to zealous and intelligent artisans. A 
chaige of 5/. per term (14 weeks) is made for each resident^ in return for which board, 
lodiiiinff, and taition are given. 

The College appears to be meeting a nec<l, for applications for admission havd 
contiiiued to come in from all parts of the country ; and there were twenty-two 
BtodeiitB'in residence throughout 1895. The course of work includes not only daily 
inttmction in theology and exporientro in reading at the chapel services, but also a 

airefiUly directed training in house-to-house visitation, in class teaching, and in 

])reaching at open-air and mission-room services. During the year 1895 three frcK3 

Stadentsfiips were provided by private liberality. The East London Church 

Fund is also supporting a student, who is pledged to take up East London work 

after training. 

Daring 1895 twenty-three men passed out from the College to various parishes 

ii different parts of England, making a total of scvfMy-four since the work was begun. 

It is hoped that the Clergy will more and more fretiuently encourage suitiible caudiJates 

t<» enter for the course of training, and apply to the College when they wish to employ paid 

Lay work in their parishes. 

Evening Leotores are provided on three nights a week during the winter mouths for 

Church Workers (Sunday School Teachers and othei"s), who cannot give up their regular 

daily employment and come into residence. 

The Bztension Soheme provides for lecturas tojbo given in other centres as may bo 

desired, and as far as the time of the College staff will permit. 

There are now two Clergy in rosMence, giving the whole of their time to the work of 

instruction and supervision. 

All communications should be addressed to the Warden, Rev. E. R. Ford, at 394 
Commercial Koad, Stepney, London, E. 

BI00S8E OF LOKDOK.— Training for Beaders.— The Readers' Board for the 
piocese of London successfully carry on this work. The sixtiH.'uth annual cour^'! of 
instruction, open to all licensed Readers tliroui^hout the Kingdom, was held :it Selwvn 
C«ll»;ge, Camoridge, from July 11 to July 25. Fifty- three Readers attended t'roin 
twenty-one Dioceses. 

The Rev. J. O. F. Murray, Fellow and Dean of Emmanuel Collegn, Cambridge, acted 

Ti' -> 


%wi tcl^. 

as Princiiial. The cost to each Reader for board and residence is 2&f. per week. Other 
expenses are defrayed by an annual grant from the S.P.O.K., and by private donations.

DIOCESE OF LICHFIELD.— Lay Seaden' Training.— The Lay Work of the Mission 
is organised by the Warden of a Training Home for Lay Evangeli.st8 at Wolverhampton, 
where nuMi, chiefly of the working class, are trained to devote themselves entirely to 
Evangelistic work under the Warden (Mr. H. A. Colvile) and Chaplain (the Rev. 
J. M. J. Fletcher, Vicar of St. Andrews, Wolverhampton). S.>me forty of these Evan^lists 
are at work in this and other Dioceses in England, Scotland, and Wales, retnmmg at 
intervals to the Home, for rest and further instruction and devotion ; there is accommrida- 
tion for ton men in the Home, of whom four are usually probationers. Much valuable 
work is done by these Evangelists among those of their own social rank, and their ser- 
vices arc often available where the ex])ense of a Curate could not be met Two of the 
men have during the past year been sent to Sonth Africa, where they are working 
amongst the railway navvies in the Diocese of Grahamstown. Other members of the 
* brotherhood ' are at work in British Columbia, in the West Indies (Nassau), and in 
Tasmania. It is ho})ed that in future there will be a considerable development of tlie 
work done by the ' Evangelist Brothers ' abroad. 

Address : The Warden, The Training Home for Lay Evangelists, Wolverhampton. 

DIOCESE OF B0CHE8TEB.— College of Women Workers for Ctodin tk>nth London.— 

Warden, the Bishop of Southwark ; Head, Miss Yeatman. — This College has been 
founded with the object of giving place and efficient training to women's work 
in one of the most densely populated districts of the Metropolitan Dioceses. 
Systematic work, regularity of habit, 8iini)licity of living, are all carefully securwl 
by rules sufficiently stringent, without being severe. The members consist of 
three classes : (1) Resident, (2) Non- resident, (3) Affiliated Members. The Resident 
Members a^e sent, with the sanction of the Bishoj>, to the assistance of any Incumbent 
of a parish where a special opportunity for work seems to lie. The members wear a 
uniform dress whilst engaged in their work, and make a payment of 1/. 1». a week or 
60/. a ycAr for board and lodging. There are now thirty- two meml)ers who render such 
services as they have time and opportunity for, in accordance with the objects of the 
College. The work is steadily progressing. A Branch House has been started in 
liOrrimer Square, Walworth. 

Address : Miss Yeatman, Greyladies, Dartmouth Row, Blackheath Hill.

The List of Eetreats and Quiet Days for Lay Persons given here cannot 
for many reasons be represented as by any means complete, but only as 
marking the character of a much more comprehensive movement to deepen 
the influence of Church work by raising the standard of personal piety 
and devotion among those who are engaged in the service of Christ. It 
would be impracticable to give an exhaustive list of Parochial or District 
Guilds; we have therefore confined ourselves to a brief notice of such 
Unions organised upon a wider scale.

The Brotherhood of St Andrew. — This work, which owes its origin to the Church in 
the United States, and has so largely developed in usefulness throughout America, has 
now been established in England and Scotland. 

The sole object of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew is the spread of Christ^s Kingdom 
among young men ; and to this end every man desiring to become a member thereof must 
solemnly promise to obey the Rules of the Brotherhood so long as he shaU be a member. 

The Rules are two : that of Prayer and that of Service. 

The Rule of Prayer is to pray daily for the spread of Christ's Kingdom among young 
men, and for God^s blessing upon the labours of the Brotherhood. 

The Rule of Service is to make an earnest effort each week to bring at least one young 
man within the hearing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as set forth in the services of 
the C7hurch and in young men's Bible-classes. 

It is a mission of young men to yoimg men, who, without leaving their daily occupations, 
are engaged as missioners in purely spiritual and aggressive work. 

The ruling aim of the members is to give, not to get, and for each Brother to concentrate 
his efforts upon individuals until they be brought under the influence of the Church.

A ChntTjh "Workers* Association has beeh organised fhr thirf^ Diocese for the 
pttrpose of binding all Church Workers in one socit-iy. A conditioii of momberehip 
Is that the anodates should bo inenibcrs of the Church of England according to the 
rule of the Prayer Book ; and though it is not actually a Conunuuicants Union, it 
seeks, by principle and method, to emphasise the importiince of ev^ry active 
Church Worker being a communicant. Much cncoui-agement was given to 
thiB movement at Colchester, where a special service was held attended by more 
than 400 Church Workers ; the Bishop of the Diocese gave the address, which 
was followed by a meeting, over which ho presided. 

Communications should be addressed to the Kev. H. Darwin Burton, Kidgmont 
HotUM, St. Albans. 


A Communicants' Guild has been formed in this Diocese tdth tlic following 
objects : 

To aid persons who have been confirmed in keeping their Confirmation vows, 
iOid to unite them tctfether in such fellowship as may help thehi to aid one another 
onward in the way that leads to eternal life, and particularly by tlled^tig them to 
Join together in Holy Communion, and in some practical work ibr God and His 

Aft to the success attending the working of the Guild since the Bishop's visit- 
ation in July 1891, 24 branches of the GuHd have been formed ; of these, 14 are 
in Dorset and 10 in Wilts : the number of members varies from 6 to 1200. The 
Guild woAfl most successfully in town jwrishes, where the number of commuiiicintii 
is large, but it has also been found to meet the wants of smaller couliti-y paiishcs. 
Through the agency of thetJe 24 parochial branches 980 communicants have been 
united in one body. 

The Guilds and Church Societies which have aflSliatcd themselves to the 
Diocesan Guild number 18; 9 of these are in Wilts and 9 in Dofset, numbering 
some 1,040 commmiicanta, so that there are now banded together in the Diocesan 
Guild 2,100 communicants. 

The Bishop of the Diocese has drawn up a manual for use, which is sold 
by Messrs. Brown & Co., Salisbury, price 6^/. It suggests different kinds of 
C7htireh woA nnder twelve heads, from which membei-s arc invited to select 
one or more as their definite service ; there are hints on devotion and holy life, 
and forma of service and private prayers for the members of the Guild, and 
also some suitable prayers for particular purposes and some appropriate hymns. 

Information may be obtained from the Geneml Secretary, Rev. W. Everingham, 
Church House, Salisbury.

It is evident enough that the prevailing Bceptioism of the day is present- 
ing many obstacles to the work of the Church, which can only be 
successfully grappled with by the wisest and most intelligent metiiods. 
Direct personal influence and instruction will doubtless be found the most 
effectu£4 way of guiding into the possession of a strong faith, those who 
may be doubting the truths of Christianity. Such work as this it is neither 
practicable nor desirable to give publicity to. 

There are, however, circumstances in which it may seem wiser to take 
a bolder course, and the following records will briefly mark what has been 
done to counteract the teaching of modem unbelief, in its more open and 
hostile forms. 


It is now a recognised part of the work of this Society to provide for Evidential 
Missions where the opportunity is presented. The work is principally carried on by the 
Kcv. A. J. Harrison, who has by his long experience acqnired peculiar fitness for this 
Work. During the year 1895 he conducted Christian Evidence Missions at Christ Church, 
Didsbury, January 27-Fcbruary 1 ; Cambridge Guild Hall, February 3-8 ; All Saints', 
Northampton, October 7-19; Birkenliead, November 8, 15, 22. Owing to illness the 
work has been in a measure susj^cnded during the present year. 

Communications should be addressed to the Rev. H. Muir, 7 Adam Street. Adelphi, 


For many years TMist this Society has endeavoured to counteract the evils o; 
infidelity by the publication of manuals in support of Christian evidence ; lliesi 
publications have been previously referred to, and information regarding tliem nia\ 
always be obtained from the Editorial Secretary. 

The Committee have not been able to see their way to accept any of the publication.' 
offered to them during the year. 

Address the Secretary, Kev. E. McCluro, Editorial and Publishing Department 
Northumberland Avenue, Charing Cross, S. W. 


Objects and Constitation of the Society. — The Society was founded in 1870 h} 
members of the Churcli of England and of other Christian bodies, to check the sprcao 
of unbelief, by the defence of Christianity, and by setting forth tlie reasons for believing 
it to be true. It has ever since been maintained on this broad basis. 

The work of the past year is as follows : 

Lectures and Sermons have been riven (many of them gratuitously)— (a) In Londoi< 
and Siihurbs: Lectures, &c. (ft) In the ProH)iccs: Brighton, Bromley (Kent), Chatham 
Chester-le-Street, Croydon, Derby, East Dereham, Epsom, Hampton Court Palace, Jarrow. 
Leicester, New Brompton, Newcastle-on-Tyne, Newport (Mon.), Norwich, Plymouth, 
Portsmouth, Shankhouse, South Shields, Surbiton, Swansea, Wellingborough, &c. 
total 265 ; also in connection with Branches, 260 Lectures, &c. (c) Open-air Lectures a' 
nineteen stations in the Metropolis, 875 ; Sx>ocial Tracts given away, 18,287. 

Cbrietian fivibence Hoendea. 113 

Tlie Indoor Lectures given in a groat variety of institutions, by members of every 
class of society, are adapted as far as possible to the special needs of particular 
audiences. They are sometimes delivered in localities where the Clergy have already 
interested and instructed their people in the subjects dealt with ; at other times new 
groand is broken up. In this work, as in that of all other Home Mission agencies, it is 
found that the unwearied labour of the ordinary workers is the best guarantee of the 
success of that which comes occasionally from the outside. Among the most interesting 
places lately visited by the Christian Evidence Society may be named — the Church Congress, 
loiportant addresses being given both to the actual members, and also (in connection 
^th the Congress) to the people of East Dereham, where the Meeting was strikingly 
successful ; Hampton Court Palace, Chatham and New Brompton, Swansea and 
Newport, Portsmouth, Derby, Norwich, and several of the London Parks. The 
Evidential Missions of Messrs. W. T. Lee and A. J. Waldron have been characterised 
by spiritual earnestness as well as by convincing argument, the whole tone of discussion 
having been thereby raised, the bitterest opponente of Christianity having only praise 
for the spirit of the Society's leading representatives. Important missions are being, 
or will be, held, or courses of lectures delivered, during the winter at Acton, St. George's 
in the East, Kilburn, South Bermondscy, Bethnal Green, "Walworth, and Manchester. 
Early application should be made by those who desire to promote the defence of the 
truth of the Christian Creed. 

Examinations in the allotted books resulted in the following awards (candidates, 
116): prizes, 13; certificates, 78. 

Private letters have shown that the publication by the Society of the uniquely 
beautiful address delivered by the late Sir Andrew Clark (when he presided at the 
annual meeting in 1890), and entitled 'The Physician's Testimony for Christ' (with a 
preface by Sir Dyce Duckworth), has been productive of much good. The eleventh 
thousand is now on sale. Miss March Phillipps' 'Cumulative Evidences of Christianity' 
may still be described as the best complete evidential handbook over published. It is 
sold at cost price. 

In many other ways the Society is working with a view to check the advances of 
infidelity, e.g. by giving information to writere in periodicals, by rendering auxiliary 
service to the Clergy, and by directing them and othera to books on special subjects for 
their own study or for recommendation to inquirers. The work of the Secretary is b^ 
no means confined to ordinary secretarial duties. A very large part of his time is 
occupied in correspondence of the most difficult and anxious character, and in interviews 
with persons needing guidance for themselves or others. Much, therefore, of the most 
valuable work of the Society is done in the office itself.

The responsibilities of tlie Church, nnd the debt of duty she owes to an 
enormous population of British subjects, cut off by circumstances from 
parochial ministrations, are gi-eat indeed. It is not easy fully to record the 
extent of the provision made for their spiritual welfare. Btit by the 
kindness of the Cliaplain of the Fleet, the Chaplain-General^ and the 
Chaplains of the principal Military Depots, we are able to illustrate to 
some extx^>nt the character of the ministrations of the Church provided for 
her Majesty's Navy and Army, whilst others have afforded us the oppor- 
tunity of showing what is being done for the great seafaring population 
engaged in trading and fishing. 


Tlio Queen's Regulations anil Admiralty Instructions provide that daily morniag 
praytu- shall V)o said on ])oard every sliip of war, and that the usual servicei* shall bts 
lield on Sunday. Wliere th(;re is no ('haj>lain, tin? conunanding officer or some one 
deputed by him says ea<di day short morning prayer, and also conducts a servico on 
Sunday moming at least. Hesich's the regular Suntlav morning service there is in nearly 
all ships carrying Chaplains, and in some ships which do not carry them, nn afternoon 
or evening service. These services an», in all cases held in that i»art of the ship which 
is found most couvenient forgathering together the ship's company ; and everything is 
prepared and arranged, as far as possible, for the comfort of the worshipp<irs, and with 
a view to rendering the place suitable for the occasion. In ships bearing Chaplains, 
it is ordered that tli(* Holy (^ommunion shall be celebrat<Hl at least once a montn. In 
some shi[>s there is a weekly Cel«'l)r;\tion, btit in all there is a Celebratfon at least once 
a month, and on the great festivals of tin' Church. Provision is also made in the 
Regulations for the spiritual at tendance (»n tiie sick in smaller vessels when in com- 
})any with a shi[) bearing a Chaplain, and in such case.^ arrangements are also made 
for the ollicers and men to attend the Sunday morning service conducted by a 

Besides these customary ]niblic service?, meetings for ]>rayer and other purposes are 
held by Chaplains — Hible Classes, Communi(;ants' Meetings, Temperance Meetings, 
and meetings of the; mem))ers of the Kaval Cluirch Society. The Regulations are 
careful to }>rovide that a suitat)h; place sliall be screened otf for these meetings, to 
ensure as far as possible the (iui«.'t which is neechnl for them. 

For the circulation of religious liteiature, ('haplains are allowed to demand books 
of a moral and religious character for lending to ofhccTs and men ; and ships not 
bearing Chaplains are supplied with suitable tracts for distribution amongst the ship's 

There are at pre5<ent ninety-eight Chajdains, some of whom act also as Navsl 
Instructors. These Chaplains fire eniployed not only in sea-going ships in all parts of 
the worhl, but in Dockyards at home and abroad, in Naval an<i Marino Barracks, in 
Hospitals and Naval Prisons, in Coast-guard Sliips, in the Receiving Ships at the 
principal })orts, and in the Training Ships for b:>ys. On board each of these Training 
Ships there are from 600 to 1,500 boys. All these boys attend school nine or ten hours 
a week for at b^vst seven mouths. During the past year at least 2,182 hoys were con- 
firmed, of whom a little over nine per cent, had not ])reviously been baptised ; and on

year from want of funds ; some of them are retired seamen, petty officers, or Marine non- 
eommisaioned officers, a class of men peeiilLirly adapted for the work. Tliese are detailed 
for work at Portsmouth, Devon port, Chatham, Walmer, Sheorness, Malta, (Hong Kong 

?*yen up from want of funds,) and a subsidy is also paid to the Seamen's Missionary at 
okohama. The income of this Society, derived from voluntary contributions, is very 
inadequate. The Society certainly deserves the notice and support of all who are 
interested in our Royal ifaval seamen.

the Royal Navy to lead holy lives, and, by means of tlio doctrine and practice of the

TwtlTe Botditead Missions. — The numerous mission vess^ds of The Missions to 
Seamen have ministered throughout the year to about 20,000 crews stroking shelter 
under the headlands forming outer raadsteads. 9,200 service and Hilile-readings 
were held with isolated crews of mixe<l nationalities and various creeds, some of them 
heathen, on we(*k«days as well ns on Sundays, in cabins or forecastles, or on tho 
open decks. The crews of distant lightships, some of them moored out of sight of land, 
are ministered to ; whilst the garrisons of the deep-water forts at Spithead, and tho 
lonely islanders in the Bristol Channel, are {H>riodicalIy visited. 8,000 tot-al abstinence 
pledges of The Missions to Seamen branch of the C.E.T.S. were taken, and 4,500 Bibles 
and Prayer Books boiufht by seamen in 1895. 18,000 bags of books were placed in tho 
forecastles of outward-bound ships, and tho captains urged to conduct Divine worship for 
their crews at sea as well as in harlK>ur. 

In all, sixty-seven Mission ve^ssels and boats, propi^lled by steam, sails, or oars, are in 
constant use. After several vears' const^int work, winter and summer, the Mission steamer 
* Oriel ' on the Medway has been pronounced unseaworthy. For sixty years a stout vsailing 
Mission vessel has been maintained in the Bristol Channel to convey a chaplain about all 
the year round to tho shipping. The present Mi^.">ion cutter has been condt-nmrd as no 
longer fit for these hazardous duties. 2,200/. has l»een eontril)Uted towards the 2,550/. 
reiinired for a steam Mission vessel for these exj)osvd waters. 

Big^htjr-flve Seamen's Chnrches, ftc. — Kighty*five Missions to Seamen Churches, 
institutes, and mission rooms aro now the centres of mission effort in docks, rivers, and 
inner harbours to sailors living afloat, or in boarding houses or homes ashort^ Churches 
and institutes combined under one roof prove groat bo<»ns to sailors in harlmur, especially 

ii6 flMddtone to Seamen. 

when strangers to the port, or out of employment after being paid off, waiting idly to be 
hired. The week-day mission services in many of them are attended in the course of the 
year by as many as 3000 different seamen of various creeds and mixed nationalities, 
who, by the aid of paged Prayer Books, heartily join in the worship. 

A well-situated building was opened on January 30, 1895, as a Missions to Seamen 
Institute for tlio 37,000 sailors who annually pass through the shipping offices at 
Middlesbrough. The Church overhead for the sole use of seagoing men was dedicated by 
the Archbishop on July 30, 1896. A new Seamen's Church and Institute has been 
dedicated by the Bishop for seafaring men at Plymouth. -Crowded out at Lowestoft, 
Poole, and Avonmouth, enlarged Seaman's Institutes are there contemplated. Anony- 
mous frienils of sailors have given 2,300/. to erect a Missions to Seamen Church and 
Institute on a site previously acnuin»d for seafanng men at Lowestoft. The improved 
habits of seamen and fishermen call for better buildings and e<iuipments for their accommo- 
dation than have heretofore l>een deemed necessary, calling for additional expenditure ; 
whilst the desire for instruction in navigation, ambulance, and cookery calls for increased 

T.R.H. the Prince and Princess of Wales opened The Missions to Seamen Institute 
for the Port of Lomion, in Poplar, on June 11, 1894, on which 12,500/. has been 
expended, whilst 5000/. more is required to complete this block of buildings. A smaller 
Seamen's Institute and Church was oi)ened in Well Street, London Docks, in January 
1894, by the Archdeacon of London, and three Chaplains, and nine lay workers have 
been appointed for the service of sailors in London. An average of sixty seagoing men 
worship in these two Seamtm's Churches on every week-day of the year. 

On the Meraey there are four Chaplains giving their whole time and service to 
seamen, with six Headers, three Seamen's Churches, three Seamen's Institutes, and three 
Mission Rooms. 

The weekly off(»rtories of seamen in twenty- four of The Missions to Seamen Churches 
and Institutes reached last year 1,251Z. 1.9. 1</. 

Though there are often great difticulties in thr way of sailors obtaining Confirmotion, 
fifty-six seamen and sailor Lids were ]>re8ented for Confirmation by the Seamen's 
Chaplain to the Bishop of GloucestcT and Bristol, and smaller numbers in other Dioceses. 
There were 4,698 receptions at the Holy Communion by sailors only in the Seamen's 
Churches or Institutes at London, Bristol, Newport, Canlitf. Penarth, Swansea, Falmouth, 
Poole, Southampton, Deal, Lowestoft, Yarmouth, Hull, Whitby, Middlesbrough, 
Hartlepool, Sunderland, South Shields, Dublin, Bilbao, Hong Kong, Yokoliama, and 
the Merse}'. 

Deep Sea Missions. — There are 36,000 re<(istere(l British merchant ships, including 
colonials, and 27,000 fishiufj vessels of the United Kingdom only, not one of which 
carries a Chaplain for the crew. The Cha]»lain of The Missions to Seamen have accredited 
1,277 devout captains, olficers and seamen as volunteer helixrs and associates for mission 
work on the high seas. Besides proniotin*^ the devo'it observance of the Ijord's Day and 
week-evening prayers on board ship, they fonn Bible (dasses, read and praj' with 
sick shipmates, instmct the lads, train choirs, promote tenii>eranee and purity, and give 
Christian burial to the dead. Volunteer mission snnicks. Hying The Missions to Seamen 
flag in the North Sea, are (centres of Church worship in the fishing fleets all the 
year round. These have ]>een miu^h eneouraged and helped by administrations of 
the Ijord's Supper by Ch!ii)lains on board a few siiips last year. 18,000 outwartl-l»ouud 
ships took to sea small li])raries in boxes or bags in their forecastles last yesLT ; and about 
900,000 publications of all kinds were put on board sea -going vessels. 

British Seamen in Forts Abroad. — Nowhere do sailora more need or moi*e value the 
presence of a real friend and facilities for worshij) than in ports abroad. L^nhappily the 
sparse British communities in such ports are not always able, however willing, to main- 
tain local Missions to Seamen without external financial aid. It is something that The 
Missions to Seamen, which heretofore served the shipping in fourteen distant |>orts, 
has been recently enabled to seeure a Chaplain for crews at Sydney, and a Keader 
at Port Adelaide, ]»oth in Australia, and a Reader for Kobe in Ja])an, and for Antwerp. 
It is in treaty with the Bishop of Singapore for a Chjiplaincy exclusively for the 
shipping at Singapore. Lack of funds has eoni[»elled the Society to withhold inuch-necdtHl 
aid for the shij»piug in ports elst^whtTc. 

Foreign Seamen in British Ports.— It is estiniate«l that about 87,000 foreign sailors 
enter ports of the United Kingdom annually. To these and to English- speaking seamen, 

fll>i55ion£5 to Seamen. n 


fislj»»rmen, and bargemen, 74,203 Bibles in tliirty-oiie languages, and 16,271 Prayer 
Books in nine languages, were sold in the last sixteen years ; whilst last year alone 
189,000 tracts in twenty-six foreign languages were distributed. 

Abitaining Seamen. — 8000 total abstaining pledges were taken last year by 
seamen, fishermen, and bargemen, in The Missions to Seamen branch of the C.E.T.S. 
Owing to the absence of religious worship on board many British niercliant ships, and 
the lack of privacy for prayer in the forecastles, many of these pledges will doubtless be 
broken. Nevertheless, the temperance movement has added largely to the seamen's 
congregations at most ports, to the purchnnejot Bibles and Prayer Books, and to the 
communicants, as w^ell as to thrift. 

The MiasioB Staff. — There are two experienced clerical superintendents, who, fi*om 
time to time, visit the r»l home stations and some of the 17 foreign stations occupied by 
43 Chaplains and 67 Readers, &c. Valuable services are also rendered to the crews of 
the shipping, fishing vessels, and barges by the 74 honorary Chaplains who take part in 
the work, and by the 1,277 captains, officers, and seamen who act as volunteer mission 
helpers on boaixl their ships, as well as by large numbers of local friends acting under 
the guidance of the Chaplains. 1,110 offertories given in 1895 helped to make 
the income of that year 37,413/. 75. 2d. 

Address to Commander W. Dawson, R.N., Secretary, The Missions to Seamen, 
11 Buckingham Street, Strand, London, W.C. The Committee meets on fii-st and third 
Tuesdays in each mojith. 


The existing work of the St. Andrew's Waterside Church Mission (established 1864) 
M-a-s efficiently carried on during the year. Applications for help were numerous, and 
some could not be entertained owing to the absence of funds. 

The distinct Church principles on which the Mission was founded — viz. to help 
the Chnrch through her parocnial (Clergy at home and her responsible Clergy abroad 
— have been strictly adhered to. The Mission acts loyally under episcopal sanction, and 
respects the rights of Incumbents. 

The thirty-second annual meeting was held in June at the Church House, presided 
over by His Grace the Loni Archbishop of York, supported by Bishop Barry, the 
Bishop of Nassau, the Bishop of Gibraltar, and others. 

Fort of London. — Grants were made to the Incumbents of all the large "Waterside 
Dock parishes and to Tilbury, and books, magazines, newspapers, &c. supplied for 
sliips' libraries and for distribution on board ship. 

Tlie Mission to Lascars, under a native Clergyman, continues to be carried on with 
much success at the Victoria Docks. 

The Church has thus heeu enabled for over a quarter of a century to work most effi- 
ciently in the Port of London through the parochial Clergy. 

Home Stations. — Liverpool, Hastings, Grimsby, Brixham, Gorlcston, Brightlingsea, 
Newlyn, Sharpness, and Milford Haven received grants. 

YoT^ijpk Porti. — At Port Said, the Church of the Epiphany, closely connected with 
the Mission, has proved a great boon both to English residents and ])assengers resting for 
a while on their way to and fro. A grant of 100/. a year is made by the Mission towards 
the Chaplain's stipend. The hospital at Port Said is most successful, and is much used. 
Grants were made to Port Said, Odessa, Genoa, Savona, Messina, Ghent, Diepj^, Stettin, 
Libau, and Newfoundland. Large supplies of clothing and provisions were sent to the 
Bishop of Newfoundland for the fishing stations in liis large Diocese, and 174/. was 
forwarded to the Bishop for his Poor Clergy Relief Fund. 

Smigration. — This part of the work, which for so many years has received special 
attention, has been energetically carried on in conjunction with the S.P.C.K. Large 
supplies of services and readings were sent to the various stations, and special attention 
given to emigrants. 

Libraries. — Over 10,000 libraries have been supplied free, besides service and hymn 
books. Magazines, tracts, and illustrated papei-s have been distributed by thousands, 
and boxes sent to many foreign stations.

Chnroh Ship and Xiuion Tachts.— The splendid yacht * Goshawk/ provided by 
J. K. West, £s(|., as long as she can be maintained as a Church ship, made a most 
RUc('(sssfuI cruise last summer and autumn, visiting Brixham, Milford Haven, Pen- 
zance?, lalo of Wigbt, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Swanage, Bournemouth, Newhaven, 
Grimsby (for North Sea floets), Oorleston, Lowestoft, Ymuiden, Anistordam, Orkney 
and Shittland Islands, having visited all tlie large fishing fleets on the East Coast and 
the Nortli of S(;otland. She was heartily welcomed by the Clergy and fishermen 
wherever she went. Funds are greatly needed to enable the committee to carty oat 
successfully this important work. The Mission acoepted her on liehalf of the Chm«h, 
and it dep<>nds ui>oii Church help whether she can be maintained. The 'Sapiier' visited 
various East Coast stations and lightships, including in her cruises Boulogne, Dun- 
ker([Uo, and Y'muiden. Church services wore held and library boxes supplied. Fnnds 
are needed for caiTyiug on her special work. The ' Water Kelpie ' remains as a harbour 
vessel at Grimsby. 

About 2000/. worth of books are forwarded to sea-going ships annually ; together with 
clothing for emigrants and the distressed fishcr-folk of Newfoundland. 

All communioatious shouhl be addressed to the Secretary, A. B. Autram, Esq., 65,

Founded in 1844 to minister to seamen, fishermen, bargemen, &c. on the Thames, 
where s(;rviiM?s are hehl in evi*ry kind of vessel. A Clergyman and fifteen lay Blissiouarios 
constitute the stalf. 

Emigration. — The S«><'i«»ty gives spi'cial attention to the spiritual necessities of 
emigrants. Emigration by Mtcamship from the port of London has vastly developed 
during recrnt years. All the ships are visited by the agents of the Society; some of 
the lav Mis>ioiiari«s accompany the vessnU as far as Gravescnd, distributing iK>rtions 
of the New T«'st;jrnont ami tracts, opening the way for the ministrations of the Chaplain, 
who jmts oil" in his steam laimcli and conducts services on boar«l. 

Summary of Becent Work. — During the past year the agents of the Society have 
jMiid the following visits: i.e. to individuals, 54,704; Uirges, lighters, small craft,

Good Church work for seamen at homo and abroad ia being done by the Fathers and 
Brothers of the Order of St. Paul, separated and consecrated to the service of God and our 
saiknrt in holy religion. 

A Priest of the Order is Harbour Chaplain at Bombay, under the Bishop ; and one 
of the Brothers, with an adequate staff under him, is working amongst the seamen at 

'fhe Mother House of the Order, with Novitiate attached, is situated near Alton, 
Hants, in the Diocese of Winchester. The Bishop of Winchester accords his formal 
sanction for services to bo held in the Abbey Church, for the members of the 

The obligations of the Order are : (1) To lead * into the way of truth ' and 'righteous- 
ness of life * those who * go down to the sea in ships and occupy their business in great 
waters.' (2) To extend to our sailors the hand of fellowship and friendship in any need, 
temporal or spiritual, which may arise. 

The Community enter npon no work in any Diocese without the sanction of the Bishop 
of such Diocese. 

Communications respecting the Community and its work should be addressed to 
the Superior-General of the Order, the Rev. J. Hopkins, The Abbey, Alton, Hants. 


Tan responsibility of the Church towards the emigrants who yearly leaVe 
for our Colonies and America has been frequently brought under the con- 
sideration of our Church Councils, and, owiag to the encouragement given 
by such deliberations, active efforts are now being made to bring them 
under the fostering care of the Church. Of the developmant of this 
branch of Church work wa give a brief summary below. It may be well 
here to point out how much assistance the Parochial Clergy may render 
by giving commendatory letters to such as may leave their parishes to find 
a home and work in our English Colonies or elsewhere. For the sake of 
general information the following statistics of emigration are given, 
corrected up to date.

The Emigration Committee reported of tlieir work for the year ending June 80, 1896» 
as follows : — To prevent any misconception, the Committee wish it to be clearly under- 
stood that they ncithor^cncouragc nor discourage emigration. Their efforts are only 
directed to caring spiritually for tlioso who have matlc up their minds to leave our 
shores. But, thougli the Committee's work is notVlirectly alTected bjr any slight fluctuation 
in the numbers enumerated by the Board of Trade, yet the following statistics will be of 
interest, as showing the magnitude of the problem with which they have to deal : 
The number going to the United States was 114,179 ; those going to Canada, 16,152 : 
to Australasia, 10,504 ; and to South Africa, 23,110. Thus the total number of 
British emigrants under these four heads was 163,945, showing a slight decrease on the 
figures of the preceding year. There was a decrease of 8,422 in the number going to the 
United States, which was more than compensiitwl for by an increase of 8,746 in the 
number of those going to South Africa. Tne number of those journeying to Canada and 
Australasia remained about constant. The feature in these numbers is the continued 
great increase of emigration to South Africa. This is in marked contrast to our other 
colonies, and engaged the serious consideration of the Committee, as is fully set forth 
below. But we must first refer to the i-egular work of the Committee in the usual 

1. The Stationary Chaplains at the Ports of Departure.— The above figures show 

that the great stream of emigration is still flowing across the Atlantic. Four-fifths of 
those who leave our shores go West, either to the United States or to Canada. Thus 
tlie chief work under this head hiis to be done at Liverpool, tliough steamers for 
Americii also go from Soutliampton and Greenock. At Liverpool the Society's work is 
ably done by the Rev. J. Bridger and his as.sistants, who visit the outgoing ships, give 
j»arting counsel to the emigrant*, and otl'er them letters of introduction to the clergy on 
the otlier side. Thus the links are drawn tighter between the Church at homo and the 
Church abroad, and efforts are made to retain the (Uiurch's sons and daugjiters in the 
fold in which they were baptised. There is, we fear, much leakage still, but at least the 
otfcr is made of commendutory lettei-s to those who depart from us. There is great 
ignorance still amongst our poorer people concerning the Colonial Church. They seldom 
realise that they will find clergy and churches and regular services to which they have 
been accustomed, on tin; oth(*r side of the sea. Yet if all Church-peoj>le who went out 
were carefully informed on those ]>oints, what a strength would be added to the daughter- 
Churches abroad ! At least the Society's Port Chaplains do their best to prevent this 
leakage becoming greater. From Southampton there is not only a weekly steamer to 
America, but from thejice goes the rush of emigrants to South Africa. They are going 
out at the rate of 400 i)er week all the year round. From London goes the gn-at 
bulk of the emigration to Australasia. Here, the shifjs are visited 1)y the St. Andrew's 
Waterside Mission and other Church Societies, so the Committee has not thouglit it 
necessary to appoint a Chaplain. 

2. The Long-Yoyage Chaplains. — We are glad to record that there has been no 
appreciable falling oil in the number of Chaplains appointed to this mo»t interesting 
and important branch of the work. Last year .50 Chaplains went to Australasia and the 
Caj>e, in addition to 43 who crossed the Atlantic. This year we have secured theser\'ices 
of 49 Chaplains, while Mr. Bridger appointed 35. The great opportunity for good 
which is thus obtained need hardly be dwelt ujion. In the few hurried moments of 
departure, when all things are in confusion, and minds and hearts are strained to the 
uttermost, there can be but little time for quiet converse or sustained instruction. But 
when the pilot has been dropped, and days and weeks of (juiet voyaging supervene, then 

to orders are shown by the Chaplain, there captain and officers give every facility for 
services, and these gain a new meaning ami a fn;sh force when taken on board 'ship. 
We believe that many a young man, leaving home with a sad heart, with i)erhap8 some- 

Cburcb fimiaration Sodetiee. 121 

thing in the past of which he is now ashamed, has gained help and comfort from the 
»ervices on board, and dates from this experience the commencement of a new life. 
We could wisli that we could hear of more clergy proceeding to the colonies, who would 
>e willing to undertake this most fruitful work. We shall not be satisfied till every big 
diip that leaves our shores carries on it a clergyman who shall care for the souls 
>f all on board. 

3. The Stationary Chaplains at the PortB of Arrival. — By means of these we strive 
;o complete the chain of influence, And hand over our emigrants (who now become 
mmigrants) to the care of the Colonial Church. Most of this work is done gratuitously 
:>y the colonial clergy, who are always glad to welcome the new arnvails. But at , 
the large ports the Society makes gi*ant8 for special Chaplains, who are ready to help 
the new-comers. At Quebec, our Chaplain, the Rev. T. "W. Fyles, continues his 
oDost excellent and useful work. He meets the ships at all hours, and advises those 
ii'ho land friendless and unknown. His experience is large, and he puts it at the 
service of all who need it. Some extracts from his report are given below. At 
Montreal the Rev. J. F. Renaud is our Chaplain, and continues his work. The new 
Home for Emigrants (the Andrew's Home, 46 Belmont Fark), the opening of which 
was referred to last year, is now in working order, and has proved of great benefit. 
There are separate departments for men and women, labour registers are kept, and a 
safe lodging is thus provided till the new-comers find employment. In addition to 
these Canadian Chaplaincies, the Society decided this year to make a grant towards the 
stipend of a Chaplain at Capetown. The Bishop of Capetown had pressed this matter, 
in consideration of the great increase of emigrants to the Cape. He asked for help 
towards a stipend of 200/. a year for three years for a clergyman whose main, or even 
sole, work it should be to furnish spiritual ministrations and assistance to the hundreds 
of sailors passing through Capetown, and to offer his sympathy and services to the 
(^rowds of immigrants who are constantly aiTiving, and who greatly need kindness, 
fonnsel, and practical guidance on reaching a strange land. The Society responded to 
this appeal, and voted 75/. a year for this purpose. 

This completes our record for the year. We only add, in conclusion, that the 
thanks of the Committee are due to the Hon. Mrs. Joyce, who helps the Society to 
choose the matrons who accompany the young women and girls going out in 'protected 
parties.' Thus every effort is made to guard against possible dangers, and to care for 
those who cross the sea. 

The Rev. J. Bridger, the Society's chief Emigration Chaplain at Liverpool, stated 
that the following statement would afford some idea of what had been accomplished 
during the year under review —

Thirty-five Chaplains had been sent out on vessels bound for Canada. With one 
exception their work has been thoroughly well done, and they report thankfully of the 
means afforded them for conducting religious services on board, and of the grateful 
appreciation of all classes of passengers. 

The number of ships leaving this port with emigrants for the United States and 
Canada was 349, carrying about 112,190 passengers. Of this number 44,622 were 
foreigners, and 24,335 were salood passengers. With very few exceptions, all these 
vessels were visited by our Chaplains.

The following information, furDished with authority, will generallj 
illustrate the work of the Church in the Army. 

Trom tkm ChaplaiaF^neral : 

Besides the Chaplain-General there are sixty Church of England Chaplains working in the 
Army, of whom sixteen are abroad and the remainder at home. 

According to the last annual return, the following were the nimihers of nonK:ommi8sioned 
dleers and soldiers of each religious denomination on January 1, 1896 — Church of England, 
145,902; Presbyterians, 14,606; Wesleyans, 11,619 ; other Protestants, 1,988 ; Roman Catho- 
lics, 36422; Mohamm^ans, Hindoos, Jews, &c., and religion not reported, 3,205. 

Thus the proportion per 1000, exclusive of colonial corps, is : Church of England, 696 ; 
PresbjiEteriiuis, 70 ; Wesleyans, 54 ; other Protestants, 9 ; Roman Catholics, 172. There is a 
continual increase in the percentage of Church of England men every year. 

The general returns of nationalities for the whole Army were as follows: English, 163,102; 
Scotch, 16,803 ; Irish, 25,386. Bom in India or the Colonics, 7,966; foreigners, 154; not 
reported, 1^20. Thus the proportion of Englislimen in the Army belonging to the National 
Church is 90 per cent. 

The Chaplain-General, Dr. J. C. Edghill, has visited repeatedly, as usual, the chief 
garrisons in England. He preached at All Saints, Aldershot, a series of mission sermons, 
which were listened to by crowded congregations, and le<l to a large increase in the number 
of Commmiicants on Easter Day. 

At the smaller stations in England and Ireland the troops are under the care of the 
parochial Clergy. 

The most pressing wants of the Church in the Army are increased, and more suitable 
buildings for Divine service, and the more general establishment of (-hurch Rooms for 
soldiers in Barracks, where Chaplains can meet their men ; as at Portsmouth, Winchester, 
and North and South Camps, Aldershot. 

In the last five years a great advance has been made in the character of the buildings 
used tar worship. Chapel schools have been changed to chapels and fitted up decently at 
C^hatham, Preston, Winchester, and Devonport. The (Chapels at ('olch«»ter, Shoebiiryness, 
and The Curragh have been much improved ; an iron church built at Hilsea, and a beautiful 
stone one at Caterham. The Castle Church at Dover has been entirely rearranged by Mr. 
Butterfield, a Choir Vestry added to Portsmouth Garrison Church, and All Saint«;, Aldershot, 
has been much improveil. 

On November 7, 1893, the new Church of St. George's, in the Stanhope lines, Aldershot, 
was consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Winchester. It cost above 11,000/. 

Permanent Church-rooms are now built through a legacy of 1000/. left to the Chaplain- 
Gei^rai for this purpose in connection with the Cinurch, supplemented by 500/. subscribeil by 
Church-people interested in soldiers. 

The fcJchool (Jhapcl on the Western Heights, Dover, has been separate*!, and a chancel 
built and organ provided; and during the yf^ar 1896 the Chupel School at Cantt^bury has 
been made into a Chapel, and was opened by the late Archbishop of Canterbury. The 
Chftplaiu-(yeneral hopes to gc«t an apse ailded during the year. 

AldarthOt. — In this large milits^ station there are generally over 17,114 troops, and in 
summer a much greater number. The women and children arc over 3000. There arc eight 
Church of England Chaplains. They are assisted by fom* Army Scripture Readers and by 
two deaconesses for work among the soldiers* families. 

There are three chtirches : All Saint*)*, the mother church ; the new St. George's Cliurch, 
which has recently been consecrated by the Bishop of Winchester, a very fine and imposing 
•tmctiire, capable of seating 1000 ; and a wooden building in the North Camp. This latter 
is in a state of decay, and must shortly be su^M^rAeded by a brick edifice, more in fitting 
with the permanent character of the newly constructed Camp. In all tliero is an early cele- 
bration of Holy Communion every Siindav jm;l Holy Day, and later celebrations monthly. 
In All Saints' Church there are three, and in the other churi*hes two, and sometimes three, 
morning parade services, at which the attendance is compulsory. At the evening services 
the attendance is voluntary. In All Saints' and St. George's there is daily Evensong. 
Chihlren's services are also held. Average attendance at voluntiuy Evensong at All Saints' 
and St. George's is between 600 and 700. 

The Clumlains give religious instruction twice a week in the Army schools to the 
ehildren and band boys, visit the hospitals and m%rried quarters, conduct temperance

meetings, luotliers' meetings, guild meetings for men and women in connection with the 
Army Guilds of the Holy Standard and St Helena, and perform pastoral work generally as 
in town parishes. 

Church work amongst the soldiers is carried on in the Church of England Soldiers* 
Institute, and in the Church of England Soldiers* Kooms^ in the South and North 
( 7amps. These are much frequented both for social and religious purpoaea, and iibere are 
devotional rooms in connection, where prayers are said every evening. 

A Church of England Soldiers' Institute has been built at Pirbright in the Aldenhot 
district, for the use of the troops imder canvas there <luring the summer. This U lar^ly 
use<l by the soldiers, and has necessitated a further extension, which is in course of erection.

189(i. W. H. Mllnbr, Junior Chaplain, 

Chatham. — At this station (exclusive of the Royal Marines, who are under the spiritual 
charge of Naval Chaplains) there are 3000 soldiers, 77 per cent, of whom belong to the 
Church of Kiigltmd. 

There is one garrison church, which these men attend at two services which are held 
each Sunday morning at the hoiurs of 10 and 11.30 a.m. The church has accommodation for 
70C>, and there are good congregations at both services. 

There is a voluntary evening service at 6.30, which is largely attended by men of the 
various corps, their wives and families. 

On the hist Sunday of the month a children's service is held in the afternoon. 

The Holy (^ommuiiion is celebrated every Sunday morning at 7.45 a.m., and on the Irt 
and 2n«l Sundays at the midday service. There are also Celebratious on Holy Days at 8. 
The Litjtuy is said on Wednesdays and Fridays at 11 a.m., and there is a daily Evensong, the 
time of which varies acconling to the season. 

The Choir at the eveuiug S4'rvice consists entirely of soldiers and the sons of soldiers of 
differtmt ranks, in number al>out 40. The Sunday schools, two in number, are attemled by 
about 150 children, many being prevente<l from coming in cousequence of living so faraway 
from barracks. The Brompton IWrracks (Koynl Engineers) Temperance Society has issued 
1,400 pledges, and can point to much real work done with mont encouraging results. This 
Society is now converted into a branch of the Army Temperance Association, and the change 
is calculate<.i to increase its usefulnefs and power. Hoth the Infantry Regiments, the Royal 
Scots and the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, have formed branches of the A.T.A. The JBLE. 
Band of Hope is tloiug good work among the chihlreu, under the direction of its founder, 
Mr. Wicks, the Army Scripture Readier. 

A Bniuch of the Sowers' Band (C.M.S.) was inaugurated on Ascension Day last, and 
continues to progress under the care of Miss (.'amplwll. The R.E. Branch of the Army 
Temperance Association has just completed the most successful year (so far as numbers 
enrolieti arc concerned) of its existence. A most useful piive of work is a Weekly Class held 
for Recruit* on their joining tlie garrison. Eacli recruit is seen and spoken to intliviihially 
l)y the Chaplain and Scripture Reiul«T, who are thus helped in getting to know something of 
the lives autl characters of the uewly-joiued young soldiers, and to show these a personal 
sympathy and interest in their highest welfare at the very outset of their lives in the Army. 

There is a room UKe<l as a temporary Church-room (on furnishing which the sum of 8()/. 
has Ix'en spent), which acc^ommiMlates 70 people. This is a most useful auxiliary to Church 
work. It is use<l for liible classes, instruction chisses, mothers' meetings, temperance meet- 
ings, and meetings of the Guilds of the Holy Standard and St. Helena, besides Kocial gather- 
ings of various kinds.

The Association is an incorporated Society composed of Churchmen of all shades of 
opinion inter&-)ted in the social, moral, and religions welfare of the soldier. The objects 
for which it is established are to open and maintain Institutes or Clubs in Garrison 
Towns, which shall be free and open to every man wearing the Queen's uniform without 
inquiry as to religions denomination. 

These Institutes or Clubs provide reading, writing, games, and bedrooms, a concert 
hall, baths, and refreshments. 

Si>ecial rooms are provided in which opportunities for worship and religious instruc- 
tion, in accordance with the creeds and pnnoiplea of the Church of Euglaud, are oflerod 
to snch men as wish to avail themselves of them. 

Eight Institutes have already been established, viz. at Aldershot, Colchester, The 
Cnrragh, Gosport, Pirbright, Woolwich, and Malta (two). Steps are being taken to 
start an Institute at Uounslow. 

Communicatioua should be addressed to the 

Organising Scretary, Colonel F. A. A. Twynam, C.B., 

Tho Church House, Westminster, S.W, 




This Association, since its formation in 1 806, has been unceasingly engaged in 
endeavouring to form a strong public opinion in favour of free and open churcnes. Its 
ohiects are to abolish pew rents and appropriated seats, to encourage the adoption of the 
offertory at every service, and to promote the opening of churches daily, Sundays and 
week-days alike. The Association feels confident that nothing has done so much to 
alienate and drive away the masses from the Cliuroh as appropriation and closed churches, 
the poor being thus shown they were not wanted, and that until all our churches are free 
and open to all, rich and poor alike, the Cliurch of England cannot bo in reality, as well 
as in name, the National Church of the lnn(l. 

During the past three years alone the Association has assisted more or loss in 
freeing some 227 churcrhes, a list of which will be found in its annual reports. In 
187(5, with the assistance of the Assocnation, a similar so<Mety was formed in the United 
States, and another in Scotland in 1877, which is now in a very satisfactory state. 
The Association has during the past three years held public meetings in London, 
Xotting Hill, Oxford, Exeter, Norwich (2), and Shrewsbury; and has distribute<l 
gratis during the same period over 250,000 leaflets. 

The Association is always willing to advise clergy or laity who are anxious to 
make churches free, and has given advice during tho last three years in a great number 
of cases. 

The Association endeavours to emphasise the fact that the greatest possible use 
should be made of existing church accommodation before building new churches, and, 
owing to its teachings, Church people are at last becoming alive to the fact that a 
church is a permanent mission to all living in the parish, and should, as far as 
posi^ble, be quite free, and open to all. 

The Association makes hniall gmnts of diair.s, kneilrrs, hymn-books, &<•., tochuirhes 
which are made free and ui>en, as funds will p«Tnut. During the last tliree yeare 
grants have been inado to 73 churches. 

The AHs<K!iation Is entirely unconnected with any pJirty in Church or State, and 
the <*<)uncil earnestly appeal to all chisses of ('lnir«h people to aid in what is un- 
donbtedly a work of /streat moment in its prntttictil influence upon Church life. 

The President of the Association is Earl Nelson ; Hononiry Secretary, F. C Dobbing, 
yjm\. ; Honorary Assistant Secretary, Hev. H. M. Tynvhitt. Communications should 
h*- addresse^l to the Honorary Secretaries, Church House, Westminster, S.W. 

128 {Temperance anb l^eecue WovK 


The following short records fairly represent the general aim and xesaltii 
the organised endeavours of the Church to cope with two of the 
vices that hinder the progress of her work. The Church of 
Temperance Society, under the influential and discreet 
Bishop Temple, has continued by patient work to stimulate the ef c 
of the Church to restrain the habits of intemperance, which are flo 
lent as to amount to a national disgrace. The Society is also eocertiiigi 
potential influence in showing the enormous evils of the drink traffie 
in forming a strong and intelligent public opinion as to the 
necessity of some wise measures of restraint. The evils of impurity 
no less (jowerful and seductive. The most effectual remedy iriU be food 
in shielding the young from the vicious temptations of their 8iirroimdiq|ii 
and in ui*ging them to recognise and practise the obligatioDB oC obastitJ.-| 
In addition to such personal influence, it becomes necessary to meettUi' 
evil by providing Preventive Homes, as well as shelter, for those who haw 
fallen, that they may be brought under Christian guardianship and instme- 
tion. By increased attention and generous help, this work has been 
enormously advanced within the ChuiTh by the multiplication of such 
institutions as penitentiaries and refuges. 


The objects of this Society arc the promotion of the habits of temperance, the 
reformation of the intemperate, and the removal of tlie causes which lead to iutem- 
pcraiice. The Society has recently been re-constituted on a purely representative basil, 
Its government beiug entrusted to representatives elected by members who have 
signed one or other of the Society's pledges and are subscribers of not less than six- 
pence a year to its funds. In thirty-fuur Dioceses active work is being carried ou under 
the supervision of Diocesan Councils. 

Police Court and Prison Gate Missions. — Further progress has been made darinf 
the past year, as no less than 9 new men were appointed, bringing the total apto77 
Missionaries employed at the IMson Gates or in the Police Courts of our large towu 
and cities. The last rei)ort shoivs that 35,07t) persons were visited at their honM^ 
13,771 were met on discharge from prison, and 3,812 handed over to parochial Clei^; 
l>esides which help was also given in other ways by providing homes, employment, 
money, clothing, tools, food, blankets, restoring cases to parents, and preventing loss ojf 
employment when possible. The nine labour yards have been exceedingly useful in 
finding emplo}'meut for persons who have been in prison, besides affording some oppor 
tunity to the missionary to watch over the cases he is trying to rescue, and often pro- 
viding the means of restoration. There has unfortunately been no increase in this 
direction during the year. 

The Junior Division. — Work among the young has l»een carried on with inciesnd 
vigour. The syllabus of instruction on the etfectH of alcohol on mind and body, whiek 
has been carefully pre|>ared and revised by medical men, was the subject of an anniiBl 
examination simultaneously conducted in six dioceses, which competed for a ChaUenge- 
Banner offered by the Central Executive. The banner was won by Durham Dieecse, 
the six jKiiKrs selected gaining a total of 37t> marks out of a possible 480. 

Zlemperance anl) *Re0Cue Morft. 129 


KTomeii's Union. — Considerable proprress has been made by the Women's Union in the 
isi»ary work of re-or^anisation, and the dioceses have all evinced greater activity in 
important branch of work. 

The Women's Union have two Long Homes for Inebriates, one, Ellison Lodge, at 
wich, and one at Torquay, and three temporary Shelter Homes in London, Liverpool, 

Blackburn, all of which are doing an excellent work. 

Raceconrse and Van Mission. — The chief race-meetings all over the country have 
1 visited by the Society's agents, and much influence for good has thus been 
-ted on those who habitually attend such places by the distribution of literature, 
ouB talks, and open-air meetings. Agricultural fairs and shows have been simi- 
y visited, and besides the ordinary distribution of literatare, recipes for temperance 
iks, and, in some cases, the diinks themselves, as substitutes for beer in the hay 

harvest field, have been given aw^ay, and meetings for farm labourers, &c., have 
n been arranged. Good work has also been accomplished amongst the hop-^ 
cers. The Van Mission was in evidence in many parts of the country, the four 
s of the Society tnuriug in no less than twelve Dioceses, in many of which the 
r lasted weeks ; 332 parishes were visited, 692 meetings were held ; estimated 
fudances 55,057, and 597 pledges were taken. 

The Kavy. — There are bmnches of the Society on an increasing number of her 
jesty's ships, which are useful in promoting temperance amongst our sailors. The 
k carried on by the Chaplains of the training 8hi{)s is most useful, and members of 
Society are continually being drafted into other ship.s therefrom. 
The United Kingdom Bailway Temperance Union works in connection with the 
!l.T.S. The work established on the ditlereut railways is thriving, and there are

Objeets of the Million. — The Church Mission to the Fallen was founded in 1880 for the 
purpose of carrving on direct missionary work amongst the fallen and imchaste, and com* 
bating vice in its own strongholds. It carries out its work by the employment of women as 
Missionaries to seek out fallen women in their own homes, in hospitals, in workhouses, and 
in public streets, by holding mission services in churches and schools, by united intercession, 
ana by efforts of a preventive nature. 

It does not propose to establish Befuges or Penitentiaries, but to confine itself to direct 
missionary worK. 

During the past year 187 were rescued from a life of sin, and placed in homes or situations 
or restored to friends. 

In addition to these, the St. Pancras Ruridecanal Branch has rescued 49, the branch at 
the East India Docks has rescued 255, and the Camberwell Branch has done good work. 

Monthly intercession services are held at St. John's, Wilton Boad, S.W., at 5 p.h., on the 
first Tuesday in each month, and at St. Mary's, Bourdon Street, Berkeley Sq., W., at 11 A.M., 
on the first Friday in each month. 

All communications should be made to the Hon. Secretary, Rev. V. G. Borradaile, 14 
York Buildings, Adclphi, W.C. 


This is a * Woman's Mission to Women,' and was established in 1858, under the presidcsncy 
of the Earl of Shaftesbury. It sends earnest Christian women into the streets, the hospitals, 
and the workhouses, seekmg to converse with and rescue the fallen of their own sex. 

There are 6 mission houses ; and 22 agents are working in different parts of London, one 
of whom attends the Police Courts and visits the gaols, with special reference to cases of 
attempted suicide. 

There are usually upwards of 50 young women under the temporary care of the Missionaries. 
They are sheltered for a few days until a more permanent home can bo secured. In the case 
of young women found in dangerous circumstances but not yet fallen, a training home is 
provided. The Missionaries have placed 8,061 in service during the last 38 years ; 11,810 have 
btvn placed in institutions for training ; 2,375 have Ixren restored to their friends ; 128 have 
been agisted to marry ; 87 have been emigrated. Many otliers have been placed in hospitals, 
or otherwise temporarily assistt'd 

The total income for the year ending March 31, li<J>6, was 2,853 A

This Aaiociation was established in 1889 — 1. To bring into union tbe existing 
agehcies in the Dioceso, to aid them in developing their resources, and to impart strength 
to solitary efforts by improyed organisation. 2. To make grants of money to institutions 
dnd towards Ihe support of mission women, and to become a centre for the collection 
and distribution of {Iccurate information in regard to the various agencies. 3. To ai<l ill 
all practicable ways the work of prevention, to grapjne with the formidable question of 
impurity in Londoti, aiid to encourage the formation of a healthier public opinion than 
at pretent exists. 

In addition to the District Associations, a Larlios' Committeo of the Council is 
engaged ih carrying on most valuable work, and is ]»re pared to en tor upon any unoccupied 
ground where a need exists for starting a fresh movoincnt. The work of the Ladies* 
Committee is nevertheless supplcnlentary to the larger object of the Council — viz. to help 
rarioua Church Institutions in the Diocese to sustain and develop the work in their 
respective districts. 

The work of the Council is varied .md includes the followiug departments : — Pre- 
ventive Work, which provides for the visitation and care of young women who may be 
coming up fVom the rural districts or who are known to bo exposed to temptation in 
vicious or careless homes. Arrancements are made for meeting young girts from the 
country. This is more necessary than is generally known. The Rescue v\^)rk conducted 
by ladies and paid agents covers a very wide area, is carefully organised, and has been 
eertoilily soocessful, especially among the young. 137 cases were dealt with dniing the 
Year 1^^ by the Ladies' Committee of the Diocesan Council alone. St. Helena's 
Hospital Home for the reception of cases needing nursing, * after-care,' and sympathetic 
treatment, has just completed a Successful nine months under the able and helpful 
Presidency of H.R.H. Princess Christian of Schlcawig-Holstoin. The Office of the 
London Diocesan Council, in the Church House, is a centre of information. Lists of all 
the Homes and Refuges are kept, and any urgent case can bo arrang(?d for by aj)plication 
to the Secretary. There are no less than 73 sucli Homes and Refuges on our lists. 
With a view to give prominence to the spiritual aspect of this Work, an Annual Service 
of Intercession takes place during Advent, and a *(2uiet Day ' during Lent, thus affoniing 
r^portunities for common intercession among those ongagJMl in this cause. A register is 
kept of vacancies and of women offering themselves as mission workera. 

Cororaunications should l>e addressed to the Secretary, the Rev. R. H. Godwin, M.A.^ 
Church House, Dean's Yard, Westminster, S.W. 


The Association consists of a company of ladies who seek out girls in their own 
homes and lodgings or in hosj>itiils, with a view to bring thoni under Cliristian and 
reforming inlluences. Those who make personal appHi^ation are also roreivcd at the 
Refuge. Th« object kept in view is twoft»ld — (1) to restore fallen girls to a virtuous 

— o . ^ '^y 

niaterial for clothing, and also of ready-nia«lc clothes, both new and old, are gladly 
received at the House of Rest. The Guild of Compassion, numbering 100 members, is 
in connection with this Association.? 

Communications should be addressed to the Iton. Secretary, Mrs. E. Sidgwickj 
20 Gloucester Square, Hyde Park, W. 



The work of this Association is not only to carry on the five Rescue Ifonios 
mentioned in the preceding lists, but also a Preventive Home at Brixton ; and a 
TcmiKirary Lodging for young girls out of place, oiu'. nt .32 Markhani Street, King's

There are now three institations under the cue of this Assodation. (1) Tha Alice 
Park Home, Cross Street, Freston, a Preventive Home for Friendless Qirla. Bj mMD* 
of this Home many vanderiog feet have been Ntayed on the downward coona to evil, 
and helped according to their needs and circumstances. (2) A small Befngs in Knowslsy 
Street, Pritston, for tlie temporary reception of rescne and prison cases, PTBTloiulf to 
their being draughted into Homes. (3) An Indostrial Home and Penitential; for 
Women at Ashton-on-Ribbte. There is accommodation for 20 fallen women, who 
nsQilly remain two years in the Home.

This Institution was founded in 1878, for Ihc pnrpose of providing a dwelling for 
ffirls and youDf; women eniployr<l in tliii workrooms, fuctoHus, he, of London anil its 
suburban districts. Ity jiatiptlt labour it hns develojiKd its ellorts, which have resulted 
at plvBcnt in the poeiHitHioii of iiitie hoUHCs in different parts of the metropolis, providing 
acoommoilatioii for 51'! young women. 

Tbeao lioinvs liavc hii-omi' chaiin<-ls for imparling; great temporal comfort, and for 
exerting many kindly Cliristian influences upon those wfio woald otliarwise have been 
left comparativi-ly lone and friendless in the great city, Kacli Home is furnished with 
Itooka and jieriodicals, classes are lield, and In many ways cll'orta are being made to coni- 
l>sas the moral and spiritual well-being of those who beiiome inmates. Some idea of the 

good work which is being ilone may lie gathered from the fact that since the com 

ment of the Home no less tlrnn 24,830 young woik-women have been received i, 
several Homes. 

Income 1895, 10,393/. 


This luHtilutioii, fnundi'd in ISfiS, was Knccessfiiliy carried on in Dean Street, Soho, 
for some ycnm Iti object is to provid..- a coinfurtabli' dwelling for hoys cmploveil in 
Ijondoii who may lie friendleSn, or whoso friends live at a distance from the locality of 
their em]iloymniit. The present institution provides for forty-Rve inmates, who con- 
tribute at least ti^. per week towards their maintenance, rcitciviiig such subsidiary assint- 
onuo OS the iuBtituIion can alfniil. 

An Gveuiug cliih is provided, of wliicOi there are about 100 rneiiibers. A liody of 
gentlemen systematically give tboir lime in seeking the moral and spiritual welfare of 
the iiiembers of this club. Clnsses for instruction are arranged for those who wish to 
improve themselves in reading, writing, drswing, sborthanil, and other uaoful branches 

of education. There is also a gxtmnasium, and instruction is given on thi'ee nights a 
week in gymnastics, fencing, and boxing. A suitable building has been erected at 26 
Great Peter Street, Westminster, where the Home is now located. We have for many 
years had a gathering of Old Boys on the Sunday previous to St. Andrew's Day ; this 
year we had oetween 200 and 300, who came from all parts. 

Communications should be made to Mr. 6. T. Biddulph, 43 Charing Cross, S.W. 


In view of the indisputable advantages of military organisation, the Church Lads* 
Brigade was formed in order to promote a spirit of discipline and respect among the 
elder boys of a parish. It is commonly felt that the Church tends to lose its hold upon 
hayi who are too old to attend Sunday School ; such an organisation as this, however, 
acts as an admirable preventive to this tendency, as it is especially formed with a view to 
retaining boys from twelve to eighteen, and combines strict discipline with systematic re- 
ligious education. The movement was permanently set on foot at the close of 1891, and 
in five years 900 companies have been formed, with a roll of 36,000. The plan upon 
which this scheme works is, to form one or more companies in a parish under the religious 
supervision of the Incumbent, and in touch with the Church. The officers are nominated 
by the Incumbent. The gcnei-al income for the year 1895 amounted to 877/. 19«. Zd. 

Communications should be addressed to Mr. M. M. Gee, Brigade Secretary, Church 
House, Dean's Yard, Westminster. 


The object of this Society is to provide a home for boys who, owing to stress of 
poverty, would otherwise be driven to take shelter in the common lodging-houses. Boys 
from various parts of the country have been received into the Home during the past year. 
The boys are trained to habits of industry, and, as far as possible, pay their board by 
their labour ; but in many cases it has been found impossible to make ihera work until 
they have been under discipline for a considerable time. The help required was esti- 
mated at 200/., but, owing to the reasons above stated, it fluctuates, and during the 
past year, in consequence of the boys having steadily kept their work, the sum required to 
meet payments was under 150/. Last year the total expenditure was 365/. Os. O^rf., of 
which the boys contributed from their wages 216/. 10«. 3jf/. 

Communications should be addressed to the Rev. H. E. Simpson, St. Matthew's 
Clergy House, Great Peter Street, Westminster.

he following records of existing Deaconesses' Institutions will convey 

me degree the extent to which this agency is now employed : — 





St. Andrew's Deaeonest Community was founded in 1861, to revive the 
primitive Church order of Deaconesses. The Deaconesses are 
trained in teaching, nursing, and in managing the various branches 
of parochial work. Ladies are received on probation, part of 
which consists of three months' ti-aining in a hosuital. When 
fully qualified the Deaconesses are set apart for tneir office by 
the Bishop by the 'laying on of hands.' Application for ad- 
mission should in the first instance be made to the Mother 
Su}>erior. All who become Deaconesses are required to have an 
earnest purpose of life-devotion^ and should regard themselves 
as entirely dedicated to their office for life. In connection with 
the work proper — parochial work — there is an Industrial Home 
for Girls, and a Convalescent Home at Westgate-on-Sea for men 
and women. 

The President and Visitor is the TiOrd Bishop of London ; the Rev. 
G. F. Prescott, Vicar of St. Micliael's, is Warden ; Sub-Warden, 
Rev. H. B. Bromby ; and Mother Christine, Superior, to whom 
all communications should be made at 12 Tavistock Crescent, 
Westbourue Park, W. The Community Chaplain is Rev. James 
0. Nash. 

The Quarterly Magazine, *Ancilla Domini,' containing a record of 
the work of the Deaconesses, may be obtained from the Editor, 
St. Andi-cw's Deaconess House, 12 Tavistock Crescent. 

The All Saints' East London Diocesan Deaconesiet' Home was founded 
in 1880 by Bishop Walsham How : 

1. To extend the primitive Order of Deaconesses, and to train 
devout women for the Office, who are solemnly set apart by the 
Bishop in Church with the Maying on of liands.' 

2. To help the Clergy in East and North London who require the 
assistance of Deaconesses in their resjiective paiishes. 

It is under the direction of the Warden (the Right Rev. Bishop of 
Stepney), the Sub-War<len (the Rev. G. C. Fletcher), and the 
Chaplain (the Rev. H. V. S. Eck). Work is being done in eighteen 
jjarishes. There are eleven Branch Homes, where the Deaconesses 
and workers live, so as to be near the parishes in which they 
work under the parish Priest. The Central Home is at Church 
Crescent, South Hackney. The work is carried on by payments 
of Dja?on''Sscs and Associates, subs'.dised by subscriptions, by 

'AeKoneaaes^ Inetttnttoiil.

undertaken by them is : to provide in this House a home for, and 
to teach and train, girls who have fallen from the path of virtue, 
and, holing shmm somr signs of penitence, desire to remain under 
prot<?ction ; to undcrUke orders for Church embroidery, and other 
branches of needlework ; to nuree, in St. Mary's Cottage, sick, 
chronic, and incurable girls, five to ten years of age, and of the 
dressmaker or upper-servant class. At Chapel House, Atherstone, 
Warwickshire, they have eighteen girls, from three to fifteen years 
of ago, who, w^hen they are old enough, are sent daily to the 
Parochial Schools till they are fit to be trained for service. At 
St. Mary's Home, Reading, they have twenty Penitents. 

The Ely Diocesan Deaconesses' Institution was established in the 
year 1869, to alford opportunities to faithful women of dedicating 
themselves to the special 84;rvice of Ciod in the work of the Church. 
Those employed act immediately under episcopal sanction and the 
control of the Clergy of the respective parishes within which their 
work is undertaken. Th(U'e are at present six Deaconesses and 
one Probationer ; of these some are living in Community, the 
others working as 'unattached.' There are also forty-three 
Associates, who in various ways render help to the Institution, 
and one Associate -Nurse. The work undertaken by the Dea- 
conesses in and around Bedford includes nursing the sick, teach- 
ing in schools, Guild, G.F.S., and Mothers' Union and work. A 
Children's Association has been formed as subsidiary to the body 
of oMer Associates ; these work regularly for the Home. There 
is also an Orphanage attached to the Home, in which the children 
aft(>r leaving school are trained for s(Tvice, kc. The Orphanage 
work lias much enlarged lately, and it has been found necessary to 
take anotlier house iu wliicth to plaee the younger children. A 
Chapel and Refectory were added to the Home in 1890. These 
give o])portunities for holding lU^trcats in the Home for 
Associates and others. Several Reti(<ata have been held since

1893, at Penarth, under the Presidency of the Bishop of the 

The object of the Institution is to extend throngliout the Anglican 
Kranch of the Church, the primitive Order of Deaconesses. With 
this view it trains devout women for the Office, the time of Pro- 
bation being generally two jears, during which time exi)erience 
is gained in teaching, visiting the sick and other visiting, nurs- 
ing, and in managing the multifarious machinery of a Parish. 

Theological instruction is given, and examination pnpers are written 
by the Candidates. 

The Deaconesses have under their care a Homo for Penitents. 

All who desire to become Associates must communicate with the 
Head- Deaconess, and ari-ange with her the special definite work 
which they will endeavour to undertake for the Institution. 
They can, if they wish, be formally admitted in the Cha|)ol of 
the Institution. 

Communications should be addressed to the Ilead-Deaconess. 

The BfOohester Diocesan Deaconess Institation. — The first Home of 
the Institution was opened by Bishop Thorold on April 16. 1887. 
The new and larger Home was opened by Bishop Davidson on 
December 1, 1891. The objeit of the Institution is to train 
(Christian gentlewomen for the work a^id office of Deaconesses. 
After they have been set apart by the laying on of the Bishop's 
hands, they are sent forth to live and work in larishes to which 
they are licensed by the Bishop. Such help in parochial work is 
greatly needed, particularly in South London. 

Candidates enter the Home for three months as Visitors ; if approved 
they then become Probationers, and receive a training of about 
two years, terminable by the Bishop. 

Seventeen Deaconesses are licensed to and arc working in parishes in 
Newington, Lambeth, Caraberwell, Battersea, Lee, ]Nunhead, Clap- 
ham, Burhain, Chatham, and Wandsworth. There are at present 
ten inmates in the Home, besides the Head- Deaconess. Many 
parishes are still waiting for Deaconesses. 

A lady trained in this Home has been sent to Lahore, to bo set 
a|)art to serve as Head-Deaconess in that Diocese. Probationers 
for the Diocese of Lahore are trained for a time in the Rochester 
Institution. Ladies in England desiring information should apply 
to Rochester Head -Deaconess. 

Ladies desiring further information should apply for particulars to 
the Head- Deaconess, 83 North Side, Clapham Common, S. W. 

The Diocesan Deaconesses' Institution at Salisbury exists to give 
practical training, with religious instruction, to women who desire 
to devote themselves to nursing the sick, teaching, and visiting 
the poor. Every candidate for the office of a Deaconess must reside 
in the Home on trial for three months, anti, if approved as a Pro- 
bationer, receives practical training in her duties, and is after- 
wards a<lmitted to the office of Deaconess by laying on of hands 
by the Bishop. The Deaconesses are bound by no vows, and are 
at liberty to resign iheir commission, or they may be deprived of 
it by the Bishop of the Diocese. 

The Head- Deaconess at Salisbury, besides the general charge of the 
Institution, has under her care and direction, and under the same 
roof, an institution for training girls for domestic service.

With a view to state as far as possible the full exteut of the Church's 
labour and sympathy in this movement, an effort has been made to ascer^ 
tain the number and amount of collective offerings devoted to Hospital 
Sunday Funds in the various towns where this organisation exists, 

These tables will be found in the Statistical Section. 



The growth of Christian philanthropy continues to be marked by the 
foundation and maintenance of Cottage Hospitals and Convalescent 
Homes for the sick poor, and the formation of Nurses' Institutions. 

Such work as we here record has special interest as marking the desire 
of the Church to bring her ministry into conformity with oui* Lord's 
example, embracing the care and healing of both body and soul. 

We have endeavoured to confine our records to such Institutions as are 
maintained by the labour and contributions of Churchmen ; but it is 
obviously impossible to discriminate in some instances between those 
Charities which are entirely thus supported and those that receive partial 
help from others. 

It is hoped these lists will be found valuable as a means of reference. 
The Editor will be grateful for assistance in making the lists as complete 
as possible.

St. John's House of Best, Mentone. — This House was opened in October 1870, to give 
change and rest to the Clergy and other professional men who from brok^i health need such 
help. During the last year this Institution was freely made use of, to the benefit of many. 

Coram nnications shouM be made to Rev. Henry Sidebotham, Cliaplain of St. Johu*8 
f'hurch, Mentone, 19 Delahay Street, Westminster, S.W. ; or Rev. C. Wyatt Smith, 
Middleton House, Upper Tooting, S.W. 

West Malvern Clergy House of Rest. — This House has been in existence for twenty- 
two years, working under the sanction of the Bishop of the Diocese, and from the testimony 
of very many it is well known to be doing a most useful work. 

The object of the House is twofold : 

1. To afford a House in a healthy locality, and with moderate charges, to which the 
Clergy can come when in need of r^t from their work. 

2. To furnish a place at which Retreats for the Clergy can be held in the autumn. 

Communications should be addressed to Rev. F. A. G. Eichbaum, Warden. 

Clergy House of Best, Margate. — This Institution has existed for some years, and has 
biH-n the means of affording rest and comfort to many of the overworked Clergy. During 
the year 1895, seventy-two Clergymen and their wives were resident in the Home for various 
periods. (Special cheap tickets from Tendon are supplied, and the inclusive charge is one 
guinea per week.) 

Communications should be addressed to Rev. H. Woods Tindall, St. Edmunds, 
Alexandra Park, Manchester. 

Clergy House of Best, Llanfkirfechan.— This House was solemnly dedicated by the m the month of July. The building is situated in a verv lovely part of the country 
on the Welsh coast. It is open to any clergvman of the Church of England, and it is 
oMpecially inteBde<l for those wno cannot afford, oy reason of their small income, to find the 
uj^essary funds for a holiday. 

Communications should be addressed to the Hon. Secretary, at the House of Rest. 

Home of St. Barnabas. — Founded 1895. Objects: (1) To provide permanent Homes for 
.\ged Clergy who are past work, or who are incapacitated from incurable disease or other 
causes. (2) A Home of Rest to which the Clergy who have broken down in their work, and 
Convalescents can be admitted for longer or shorter periods as necer>8ary. (3) A Home where 
Mi«ionaries who have returned home invalided can bs received, cared for, and nursed until 
»ble to resume their work. There is no lustitytion in connection with the Church of England 
that meets the cases that are provide*! for by the Home of St. Bamabis. It can truly l>e said 
that the need for such an Institution has long existed, but the reasons for founding it are 
now stronger than they ever were before. Until funds have been collectetl to build the first 
portion of the permanent Hume, provision has be»« ma<le to receive cases in two detached 
houses at Dorman's Park, a beautiful and healthy locality, on the borders of Surrey and 
SoKtex. A Wooden Church, within fifty yanls from and opposite the Home, has been secured 
fit a low rent as the Chapel of the Institution. The Home is now open for the reception of 
sixteen inmat'CS. Mrs. W. H. ('oop<?r, who was Hon. Lady Superintendent of the Hostel 
of St. Luke, undertakes the same position in the Home of St. Barnabas, assisted by 
Trained Nurses. 

Application for atlmiision to be sent to tlic Hon. Secretary and Warden, who will be glad 
to give full information about the Home. Nec(!s.sit()u.s cases Free. 

Communications should be addres.'^ed to (^anou W. H. Cooper, Home of St. Barnabas, 
Ea^t Grinistcad.

The following tables, taken from the Returns of the EilncAtJon Depnrt-

The slight decrwiso in iwcommodiitioii will probably be accounted for by 
the increased demands of the Department-, who in many cases have re- 
duced the number of places for which the (ilder schools were consiilereii 
available. As in mauy country schools the accommodation provided in 
1870 was largely in excess of the possible itttendance, managein didiint 
feel it necessary to contest the reduction. The two really imi«rt.'int 
statistics are very satisfactory. 

The average attendance has visfjn from 1,847.6150 to 1,850.5-15, being 
an increase of 2,885 ; and the voluntary contributions have risen from 
^622,034 to .f640,40fi, being an increas,- of .£18,372. This RUtistic 
can bo seen from the following table.

When it is remembered that the voluntary subscriptions of Church- 
men in 1870 were 336,103^., about half the sum now contributed, the 
serious inaccuracy of the assertions lately made, that subscriptions were 
diminishing, is most apparent. It must not be forgotten that the incomes 
derived from land and tithe are from twenty-five to fifty per cent, less now 
than they were in 1870, but Churchmen, whether clergy or lay, though 
many of them have been affected by this depreciation, have not been 
hindered from doubling their contributions to Church Schools. And 
further, it must be borne in mind that the amount returned to Govern- 
ment by no means represents what Churchmen spend upon their schools. 
The following figures, carefully compiled from official sources, show what 
Churchmen were really spending in 1894 : 

For General Mainten- 




ance .... 
For Maintenance of 




Church Training Col- 
Cost of Diocesan In- 


spection of Schools .

Lafit year's voluntary expenditure upon Church Schools and Training 

Colleges raises the amount spent by Churchmen on their schools, since the 

National Society was founded, to nearly 39,000,000/. The total amount 

will largely exceed this sum if account be taken of the value of sites, and 

also of the cost of numerous schools built by individual owners of property. 


tXcmentat^ j£b\xc&tiotL 

Accurate statistics respecting the value of these sites and schools, it is 
ohvious, cannot possihlj he ohtained, hut their number and value, as 
shown hy information constantly coming before the Committee of the 
National Society, prove that in previous statements they have been under- 
estimated. Considerably more than half the voluntary expenditure has 
taken place since the year 1870, as may be seen from the following 
table :

The best evidence of the vitality and progress of the Schools of the 
Church is to be found in the increase in the average attendance and in 
the amount of accommodation between 1870 and 1895.

Churchmen must feol that the foregoing statistics afford satisfactory 
evidence that Church Schools are in a position to meet with confidence 
the crisis with which they now find themselves fi\ce to face. 

In consequence of the Government having failed last year to carry 
any scheme for redressing the grievance of Voluntary Schools, an im- 
portant Committee, consisting of four members of the Northern Province 
and four members of the Southern Province, was convened by the National 
Society. The Kesolutions formulated by this body were, with slight

It is self-evident that if Voluntary Schools are to maintain their position 
the most vigorous efforts should be made to increase and insure their 
efficiency. That Churchmen are alive to their responsibility in this 
nuitter is cleai-ly apparent from the accounts here given of the steps 
being taken to assist the weaker schools to fulfil the requirements of the 
Education Depirtment. 


This Association has recently been formed in defence of the Voluntary Schools of 
the Church of England in the seven northern counties, and ah-eady some practical work 
has been done in giving effect to its objects, which art? as follows : (1) To educato 
public opinion upon the (questions at issue ; (2) to counteract the misrepresentations of 
those who are the opjwnents of definite religious tfuiching ; (3) to organise publio 
meetings; (4) to adopt every legitimate means to convince H.M.'s Ministry that any 
measure for the relief of Voluntary Schools, in the interests of justice, religious liberty, 
popular education, and sound tinance, should be adequate in scope and permanent in 

CommunicAtions should be addressed to the Hon. Secretaries, T. H. Jenkins, Esq., 
tud J. G. C. Parsons, Estf[. Olfiee, No. 20 Royal Exchange, Liverpool. 


DIOCESE OF GANTEBBTTBT.— The Canterbury Diocesan Board of Education 

was founded 56 years ago, for tlie purfmse of diffusing and maintaining throughout 

the Diocese a system of sound, useful, and religious education on the principles of 

the Church of England. 
I It undertakes the inspection in Religious Knowledge of all the schools in the 
' Diocese. Its inspectors in 1895 examined 576 s<'hool departments, containing 
j 80,206 children and 333 pupil teachers and paid monitors. In addition to this the 

examiners appointed by the Board examined, under a Prayer Book Prize Scheme, 

308 scholars. 

The Diocesan Board has since its foundation voted grants amounting to 26,502/. 

tfjwards building, enlarging, and fitting schools in the Diocese. The total outlay, it 

is estimated, on those objects has amounted to 248,547^. In 1895 it voted building, 

enlarging, and fitting grants which amounted to 677/. 

The Diocesan Board also makes maintenance grants to struggling schools, after a 

full in<iuiry into their condition has been made by its Organising Visitor. 

The Board also makes grants to monitors. It undertakes the examimation of 

Higher Grade Schools. Its income in 1895 was 1,353/. 13«. 6d. Its annual meeting 

was held at Sevenoaks, and was very largely atteiuled. The Archbishop presided. 

Secretaries, Rev. Canon Nisbet, Ringwould, Dover ; and Rev. J. Williamson,

to the Cm federation. The scheme embraces (1) a Central Diocesan Council, formed 
of i>artly ex officio, partly elected members, the latter representing the school 
managers and the head teachers of the affiliated Church day schools ; (2) an executive 
committee of the Council for the Transaction of Business ; (3) Local Ruridecanal 
Associations of Representative Members, elected by the managers and certificated

DIOCESE OF BIPON.— The Leeds Clmrcli Day 80I100I Aisooiation, founded in 
1884, has greatly improved the condition of its attiliated schools, of which there are 
14 at least, with an avei-age attendance of al)out 17,000. Its chief methods are : (1) 
:he iM»riodical inspection by its Organising Master of such schools as desire it; 
10 endeavour is made to influence the managers in this matter, but all the 
iffiliated schools have asked that they may be visited by the Organising Master; (2) 
issistance by the advice of its Committee given to managers of schools on particular 
K>ints of management ; (3) co-operation with the manageraiu the general management 
)f a school w^ithout undertaking any pecuniary res|)onsibility ; (4) joint management 
»f schools of which the Association undertakes the pecuniary responsibility. There 
ire now three such scliools. Whilst preserving the independent character of the school, 
o far as is possible, the Association expects to have in these schools a dominant voice 
n respect of — (a) any structural alterations ; (6) determination of the character 
>f the schools, whether mixed or otherwise ; (c) number, character, appointment, 
md dismissal of staff ; (rf) rate of school fees. The Central Fund, inaugurated in 
891 for the purpose of assisting the poorer schools to effect necessary structural 
mprovements, is still oj)en. 

Joint Banking of Government Grants. — Schools are invited to deposit the amount 
>f their grant with the Association, and in return are allowed an overdraft not 
xceeding two-thii-ds of their average grant for the three last preceding years, 
iy this system strong schools can materially assist the weak, ana the weak each 
>ther ; * A,' which has Just exjtcnded its grant, using the money of * B,* which has 
ust received its grant. No school which is not solvent is admitted. For this purpose 
L school is deemed solvent which upon receipt of its gi'ant can clear off all liabilitioa 
n ri'spect of its current expenditure up to the end of the financial year just closed. 

Onjaaislng Muster s IFork. — {a) Inspection of Schools. — The Organising Master 
s required to visit each school three months before II. M. inspection. After cx- 
miining evciy standard two reports are drawn up, one for the head teacher of 
ach denartnient, j>ointing out fully any weakness in the work of the various 
tandarus, and one to the managers, dealing gonerally^ with the work of the school, 
ind dmwing attention to any delicicncies in staff, apparatus, &c. {b) Consultation. —

The Bradford Churoli of England Sohool Society.— This Society, formed in 1881, 
las rendered practical service in retaining several schools in the district on the verge 
►f closing or becoming Board schools. It has made grants to assist schools in 
imes of exceptional difficulties, and to render them more efficient with a view to 
heir permanence.

DIOCESE or ROCHESTER. — No schools have been lost during the y(;ar and 
^vcml new ones have been built. Tlie demand of the Education De]>artnient for 
mprovoments in the school fabiics have cost 117,000/., apart from 30,000/. per annum 
aiscd by voluntary effort for maintenanee. The Work lias been pmctically completed, 
iTid a strenuous efl'orl is being made to extend tlie Church S^hools of the Diocese by 
ff) re- opening closed buildings, (b) erecting new ones. In order to ci*eate a Central

The reorganisation of the Diocesan Boird, which took place at the end of 1803, 
has proved a success. The whole Diocese is covered with Church School Uniona, tlie 
area of which for the most part corresponds to tliat of the Rural Deanery. Those 
consist of all managers and teachers of Church Elementaiy iSchools, and are the con- 
Htituenoies by which the central body is elected. The Church School Union retains 
for local purposes one-third of the income of the Board collected within its area, a 
plan which is stimulating in a marked degree local effort. There is a joint Banking 
Scheme, which comprises eight groups of scliools, and also a Common Fee Grant Fnnd 
for the purpose of making loans for building purposes, repayable in four years. The 
staff consists of four Diocesan Inspectors (one of whom is Secretary), an Or;ganising 
Master, and Assistant. There is a Dioce5an prize scheme, and leotuns are delivered 
to the students at the Central Classes for Church Pupil Teachers, and also to teachers 
in Board Schools. 

The Diocesan Board is incorporated, and acts as Trustee of now schools, as well as 
of the funds of the Banking scheme. The general income of tlie Board for 1895 
was 1867/.

DIOCESE OF SOUTHWELL.— Kottingham Choreh Sohool Board —This Board 

has existed for several yonrs, and is doing much valuable work amon^ the teachers 
and schools of the town. The pupil teachers are assisted by sjtecial instructors in 
cent nil united classes. Prizes are given by the Bnani for Religious Knowledge, and 
the interests of the Churcii Schools are watched and guarded.

Derby Arohidiaconal Board.— Grants to the atnount of 190^. have been made 
during the year, chiefly in aid of stnietural alterations required by the Department. 
It Is believed that there ani now very few (if any) schools in the Archdeaconry which 
are not in goo<i order. The in8|>ection in Ri?ligious Knowledge is now under one Chief- 
Inspe<>tor for the whole Diocese, assisted by seven voluntaiy (Clerical) inspectors in 
each Archdeaconiy. 

Communications should be made to Canon Atkinson, Darley Rectory, Matlock. 

Southwell Dioees&n Education Committee.— In addition to the Archidiaconal 
Boanls of Education lor Derby and Notts, elForts have been made from time to time 
townixls the formation of a central committee of this Diocese. I-Ast year the alwve 
boards elected rci»resentative8 for this ])ur}K)so. A Diocesan Education Committee 
was a felt want to promote unity of |)ur|>osc and action in educational matters, to lie 
ready to act in emergencies, and to sinii»lify procedure. A Diocesan Ins]»c<.*tor for the 
whole Diocese has been appointed by this body, and the Syllabus for licligious In- 
struction has been revised. 

Tlij Bishop of the Dioccso has taken an active and warm interest in tliia 

The Rev. F. B. Manners, Kirklington Vicarage, Southwell, is the Hon. Sec. of 
this Committee. 

Kotts Archidiaconal Board.— The work of this Board may be dividetl into three 
parts : (1) The inspection of Schools in Religious Knowledge ; undertaken by an In- 
spect or-in-Chicf and Assistant In8i>ectora. In the county there are 197 schools, of 
which 156 were inspected. These schools have 35,33<) scholars on the Ijooks, and 
28,046 in average attendance. Only 59 were withdrawn from all religious instruc- 
tion. Pupil teachers and niouitors numbering 270 were examine«l, all sliowiiig higher 
attainments than the previous year. (2) The Organising Visitor. The 8j)ecinl dis- 
advantages of rural pu])il teachers are only too obvious. These have been in a 
measure met by the institution of a Quarterly Examination in accordance with Circular 
343 to H.M. Insfiectors. This effort has been met l»y an afleciuate response, and 
beneHcial educational results. The iirimary work of this official in giving the aid of 
an exp<*rt to managers and teachers makes but slow ]> owing to conservative 
and jmrochial prejudices. When his services ai-e utilised, in emergencies geiieiallyy 

(tburcb il^av Scbool aseociationa. t^j 

there is a conscnsos of opinion that his advice is of permanent value. The schools 
visited produce higher educational results. (3) Finance. The sum of 297^. was 
paid in grants towards school alterations and enlargements. The cost of inspection 
in Religious Knowledge was 177/. and of the Organising Visitor 63/. ; both the latter 
payments are only a portion of the total Diocesan cost. 

In conclusion, it is perhaps superfluous to add that the Board, in company with 
others, has been occupied in the discussion of the various schemes suggested to 
relieve the 'intolerable strain.'

Derby Chnroh School Council. — This Council, composed of representatives of all 
the Church Schools in Derby, Ims existed about four years. Besides giving oppor- 
tunities for conference on questions of school management, it has maintained a centre 
for the instruction of pupil teachers, in which about one hundred are now being 

Hon. Sec, Canon Sing, St. John's Vicarage, Derby. 

DIOCESE OF WAKEPIELD.— Wakefield, Dewsbnry, and Birstall Church Daj 
School Association. — The above Association was established under the scheme 
adopted on May 29, 1890, by the Wakefield Diocesan Education Society. 

The object of the Association is to maintain, extend, improve, and i-ender more 
efficient the various Church Schools in the above district. 

There are 73 Church Schools in the Association's area ; and of these 67 are 
affiliated to the Association. 

Conferences are held with managers, and advice is specially given on finance, 
school apparatus, and condition of premises. 

Grants to necessitous schools are made by the Diocesan Education Society on the 
recommendation of the Central Committee of the Association. 

The Association has interested itself in the establishment of Central Classes for 
Pnpil Teachers, and in the establishment of organisations for their periodical examina- 
tion. Except iu one district the whole of the pupil teacher instruction is provided 
for under the Central Class system. 

A school library has been established with samples of books, apparatus, and school 
materials of an approved character. 

Great success has attended the work of the Association. Throughout the district 
large sums of money have been raised for effecting improvements in the school build- 
ings, and since the formation of the Association eight entirely new schools have been 
erected, and improved accommodation has been provided in the majority of the other 
school buildings, at a total cost of over 26,000^. 

The work of school extension and improvement is still actively progressing, and 
in the case of seven schools only is work now needed to bring the buildings of all the 
affiliated schools fully into line with modern requirements. 

In the matter of attendance and grants, quoting from the Organising Master's 
Report, we find that the average attendance and the Government grants nave con- 
siderably improved ; that an increasing number of schools are earning the higher 
fixed grants, and the higher grants for discipline and organisation ; that the grants 
for class subjects are being well earned, and that a great measure of success has 
attended the teaching of drawing, now a compulsory subject in upper schools 
where there are boys. Every school is *cfficic)U.* No warning has been received in 
any school.

Huddersfield, Halifax, and Silkstone, within which area there are 115 schools, 86 of 
which are affiliated. One school iu the Saddleworth district continues its connection

Brief fltmunary of Work, 1895. — The gross amount contributed by the Society 
towards the erection of training institutions and schools up to December 31, 1895, ia 
723,713/., and 847,194/. towards the cost of maintaining training colleges. It should 
be borne in mind that, large as this sum undoubtedly is, it only represents a small 
portion of the actual outlay expended, as each grant from the Society is made on the 
condition that a proportionate amount of local contributions has, in each case, been 

Traiming Institutions. — During the past twenty-five years grants to the amount of 
<S.S89/. have been voted towards the building and enlargement of Church Training

Abstjial-t ok Work, 1895 96. 

I. KoDfly Onnti : 1. For Chnrcb Torpout at Eoma.— At home the Society ban 
continued to assist ths cause of religious education by the maintenance of St 
Katharine's Training College for School- mistresses, at Tottenham, which again has 
received the very highest eonimeiidation from both the Religious and Roveniment 
Inspectors. Maintenanee and other estnbliahment expenses are defrayed by the Society. 
The total cost of founding the College hna amounteit to upwards of 40,0001. Muij 
granta have been voted to build Sunday Si^hools and Mission Rooms, and funds provided 
towards the employment of Church History Lecturers. 

The training of Lay Evangelists has been continued with much success at its Tnin- 
ing Home at Stepney, for which 1,5001. were lately voted. The Society has lately 
taken the important step of deciding to erect permanent buildings for the College in 
place of those which have hitherto temporarily served for the purpose. It has also 
continued to help in the education of the children of the poor in the principlca of the 
Church. Some grants in aid of religious education call for special remark. In co- 
operation vith the London and Rochester Diooeun Boards of Education, the Society 
has provided for the religious instruction of pupil teachers in Board and other schools. 
Courses of lectures have been given at many centres. 100/. wi^re given for a Canon 
Lecturer in the Diocese of Gloucester and Bristol, and cousiderable grants were voted 
Tot the enlargement of Trainina Colleges for school -mistresses in the Dioceses of Oxford, 
Peterborough, St. Alhsns, Durham, and RiiKin. Last year the Society offered 18M. ill 
exhibitions to London School Board pupil leachere. to enable them to enter Chnreh 
training colleges. The Society gives pnzes of H. to every pupil teacher on entering 
a Church training college who has taken a lirst-class in the Archbishop's theological 

examination, and in the past year 430/. were voted for this purpose. The work of 
ling lanterns to the parochial Clergy in populous places to aid the work of evang«lis- 
n of the masses, and spreading a knowledge of Church history, has been continued. 

In the post year 9S3 lectures were given in connection with this scheme. 

Since 1869 the total sum granted for building and renting Sunday schools has 
exceeded iS,O0Ol. 2,19S/. was voted for the building and fitting of 22 mission rooms, 
and towards^ the rent of various buildings for Sunday-school purposes Inst year. 

A grant of 601. hsB been renewed towards the stipend of an Irish -speaking Clergy- 
man in Bcrehaven, and another of 25/. for a similar purjiose at Innisbegle. 

The Society's Church Training College for Ijiy Workem in East London, accom- 
modating 26 students, has bi>«n nt work, and about 100 men have been trained during the 
last four years, and eveuing classes specially lor Snuday- school teachers have bean held.

2. Oranti for Chnreli Work Abroad. — In connection with the work of theological 
and general education the Society continues to give help towards the training of 
Missionary Clergy at various colleges in the Colonies. Pecuniary aid is also given t j 
a number of S.P.G. theological colleges and girls' boarding schools. Last year grants, 
amounting to 8,140/., were made for more than 145 churches and schools in all parts 
of the globe, two Bishoprics were helped, and 1,000/. were voted for the endowment of 
Bishop's College, Lennoxville, in Canada. Seventy-seven students were maintained in 
training for Holy Orders and lay mission work. 

Industrial Training. — No fresh grant has been voted during the current year, but 
the Bishops of Sierra Leone and Grahamstown have both claimed the grants promised last 
year. At Freetown, Sierra Leone, the Technical School to which the Society promised 
300/. has been successfully finished, and was opened by the Governor of the Colony on 
Jan. 25, who made a noticeable speech on the occasion, touching on the important 
bearing which industrial work must have on the future of the African race. The grant 
of 100/. towards the salary of the Director of this School has also been claimed. Good 
reports have also been received from Keiskaina Hock in the Diocese of Orahai^istown, 
where a start has been made in training both native boys and girls under the new 

Canning* 8 Fund, which helps towards the passages of Missionaries proceeding for the 
first time to their spheres of labour, has been largely drawn upon, and altogether 24 
such missionaries received grants. 

Medical Missions, — The Society helps in the erection and equipment of buildings, 
the maintenance of missions in their early days, the training of students, and tne 
cost of the passage out of Medical Missionaries. It is at present assisting Medical 
Missions at Mahonoro in Madagascar, at St. Barnabas Mission, Pondoland ; at Durban 
in Natal ; at Dummagudem, Chaibasa, Poona, and Alambaukum in India ; at Haifa in 
Palestine ; at Peking in China ; at Tokyo and Kobe in Japan ; and at Metlakatla in 
British Columbia. Last year three frf sh grants were made, all of which were renewals 
of help given in previous years. To tlie Medical Mission at Freetown, Sierra licone, 
which the Society began to help in 1892, a further grant was given of 100/. a year for 
three years, and also 15/. towards the cost of the doctor's passage out. To Nazareth, 
Tinncvelly, the Society voted 140/. a year for three years towards the cost of a native 
Christian Doctor. To Chemulpo in Corea, where Dr. Landis has done excellent work 
for the last three years, the Society promised 60/. a year for three more years. 

Altogether the Society is at present pledged to the annual expenditure of more than 
1400/. for the maintenance of Medical Missions. 24,450/. have been voted during the 
last nine years. 

Foreign Translation. — This branch of the Society's work is fully dealt with on 
pp. 242-244. 

Emigration, — By the Society's system of Port Chaplains an<l Long- Voyage Chaplains 
every emigrant can now be commended to the care of a Clergyman, who will give him 
the best counsel in his power. 

n. Book Oranti for Churcli Purposes. —The Society's operations as the Bible and 
Prayer Book Society of the Church, and as a Church Pure Literature and Tract Society, 
are, for the purpose of classification, divided into five sections— viz. (1) special cases, for 
which 571 separate grants have been voted during the year, amounting in value to 
2,920/. 13«. 3d. ; (2) public worship, comprising grants of Bibles, Prayer Books, and 
hymn books to churches, &c., for which 285 grants have been made, amounting to 
819/. ISs, 6rf. ; (8) schools, libraries, and distribution, for which 705 grants, of the 
total value of 2,359/. 6s. Od., have been made ; (4) service books to new churches, &c., 
for which 63 grants, amounting in value to 172/. 15s. 8rf., have been made ; (5) trust 
funds, from which 122 grants, amounting to 467/. 13s. 7rf., have been made.

Prof. Mas]>ero, currying the history of Egj'pt, Sjiia and the Empires of the Euphrates 
down to the niuth centuiy before our era. It is entitled ' The Struggle of the Nations,'

Mr*. McCinre, and Prof. Sayce is the editor. The Library Edition of Mr*. Ewingi 
Works is now complete, and consists of cightfen volumes. Mothers who value healthy

Sea,' by Q. Maoville Fenn, nnit 'Jack Bereefonl's Yani.' l.y Han^- Collingn'ood, are two 
sloriea of adventure of a healthy, manly tvi<e, by authors who thoroughly undeivtand 
how to interest tlietr young readers. ' flis Uvel Ik-itt,' by F. B. Forteacue, 'World's 
Gain,' by Helen Shipton, nnd ' Peter the Peacemaker,' by ■ E. A. T.,' are tales of 
widelv varying character, likely to attract boys of all SRies. For ndultii gfnenill;.' nnd 
foj' sanuol-piiiea, the following tales will be fonud suita)>le : ' Matthew Pufcyu,' by Uta. 

Henry Cliirke, a story which brings us back to the time of the Chartists ; ' A Little Lass

book; 'The Temptation of Ernest BUerby/ by F. Lethbridge Farmer; «An Ill- 
Matched Pair/ by Austin Clare, a well-known story of the north country ; * Ballin- 
valley,* by the Venerable Archdeacon Wynne, a tale of the Irish Rebellion ; * Miss 
Chilcott's Legacy,' by Miss L. Bedford, in which the hero is gradually reclaimed 
from dissipatdd courses. For the parochial library the following tales of middle and

Titis Society was established in 1799, on the basis of united action on the part of 
Churchmen and Nonconformists in the production and circulation of Evangelical 
liltamture. It was felt that, without any coraproraisa or surrender of the distinctive 
I»rinciples of the body to which they might individually belong, they could heartily 
co-operate in ditfusing literature inculcating and upholding those great Gospel truths on 
the importance of Whioh all Protestant Bv.mgolieal Christians are agreed. So from the 
first the Committee of the Society has been composed of an equal number of Churchmen 
and Nonconformists. Both are represented on its Editorial and Secretarial staffs. One 
of its Honorary Secretaries is. always a Clergyman of the Church of England, the other 
a Nonconformist minister. 

The subscribers belong to many Churches —a Very large proportion to the Church of 
Bngland. Its grants are made without distinction to all who apply and make out a case 
for assistance. 

The Foreign operations of the Society are also extensive through its corresponding 
Committees in India, China, Japan, &c., by help given to Missionaries all over the 
world. The Society does an important work in the publication of a Christian litera- 
ture — 'the Missionaries of all Protestant Societies participate in the help thus given, and 
some of the best known aud valued Missionaries of the Church of England serve on 
these Committees. The grants made by the Society in aid of colportagc and in aid of 
the formation of circulating libraries, as well as those for the circulation of periodicals 
aud tracts, are most thankfully acknowledged by Colonial Bishops and Bnglish Chaplains 

The amount given in grants last year was 32,561/. I9s. hi. The balance of this 
amount over and above the receipts from sulwcriptions, &c., was supplied from the trade 
receipt) of the Society, which also pay all cxptiuses of every kind.

It is genei-ally admitted thut vi-ry much of the popoUr litentura of our 
day is directly injurious in its influence upon the purity of sociid life, and 
tends unfairly to arouse the prejudice of men against all olasses and in- 
Btitutiona. A very practical work then lies before the Church in provid- 
ing for the circulation of a literature of higher tone and character, yet 
sufficiently popular to attract the working classes. To this necessity the 
Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge has especially turned its 
attention with many beneficial results. The Parochial Clergy also have 
very generally helped in popularising wholesome literature by the adoption 
and extended use of local libraries and magazines. 

The Sooiety for Framoting ChriatiaQ Knowledge. —The aucceta of the Society's 
' Prnny Literature,' of wljidi milliona of copiea have been sold during the laat foor or 
five yeara, has induced tlie Committee to extend it by a series of reprinta of Engliali 
clasaica. Aa the aim of tbssa punny books is to supiilnnt the demoraliiing literature 
cii'culated here and there by cheap stationers throughout the country, and greedily 
devouL-cd by boys, the reprint at a peony eacli of iuteresting staiidnrd tales cannot but 
further the object in view. Seven volumes of this new series were published in the 
antumn of 1894, and seven more in the autiimn of 1896, and mot with most extra- 
ordinary Buccesa. The Conuiiittve have tbua lieen encouraged to continue the aeriea, 
and the following five additiotial volumes liave how been added, vii. ; — 'The King's 
Own,' by Captain Marryat ; 'Nick of the Woods,' by B. M. Bird ; 'The Little Savage," 
by Captain Marryat; 'The Subaltern," b^ J. R. Gluig ; 'The Borderera," by J. 
Fenimore Cooper. This Barics, which is in proceas ol onlargomont, is eapecully 
characterised by the careful choice of henltliy material and the extreme haadinesa of 
the aniall volumea, which can be easily carrieil iu the pocket. 

Another ' Penny ' series which has aidiluvud great popularity ia that of penny book- 
lets, similar in size and appearance to tlie ordiuary penny novelette, in each of which 
•ome important hygicuic or acientRc truth is clearly taught in narrative form. It ii 
hoped that this aenea may induce many to take a furtlicr interest in the nutten with 
whivh they deal. 

'Under the titlo 'The Rotiiance of Science,' the .Society is publishing a set of popular 
books which cannot but enlarge the views of general roailers. The foUoning nave

ParochiAl Xagaiines. — By increasing the circulation of these serials much good has 
nndoubtedly been done, in introducing popular and pure literature into the homes of 
the working classes. It is to Canon firakine Clarke that the Church is chiefly indebted 
for the idea whibh has led to the introduction of a parochial majrazine into so larse 
a number of well-organis«d parishes. The publication (*The Parish Magazine') lately 
«»dited by himself is well known, and has a very large circulation ; 'The Dawn of Day/ 
issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledj^e, has reached a monthly issue 
ot about half a million coiies. This magazine is now issued in two forms, quarto and 
octavo, the first containing 24, the second 32 pages : it is by far the cheapest of 
parochial magazines. In the issue for 1896 is a serial story by C.E.M., author of 
'Adam Gorlakc's Will.* Dr. Maclear, Professor Swete, Miss C. J. Wood, Miss May 
Cochrane, Helen Shipton, Austin Clare, Miss Marshall, Mrs. Clarke, Christian Burke, 
and others contribute articles on Church Doctrine and History, Temi)erance, &c. 
Among other )iarochial magazines doing a good work we should mention the follow- 
ing: 'The Gospeller,* 'Things New and Old,' 'The Evangelist,' 'The Banner of 
Kaith,' and 'The Church Monthly.' There are also 'Home Words' and «The Day 
of Days.' 


That the Church is zealously working for the increased * usefulness of 
Sunday Schools is evident from the following review of the organised 
efforts made in this direction. The necessity for this agency is more than 
ever enforced by the prevailing agitation to eliminate religious instruction 
from the elementary schools. The measure of the power which the Sunday- 
school system may exert to supply this lack will depend largely upon 
the spiritual and intellectual qualifications of those who devote themselves 
in this way to the instruction of the young. That this aim is being kept 
carefully in view is evident from the following records, illustrating the 
steps that are being taken to promote the growth of a higher standard of 
devotional life and sense of responsibility among Sunday School Teachers, 
and to multiply opportunities for their advancement in knowledge. 


This Society was established in the year 1843. During the fift3'-three years of its 
existence it has made steady progress, accompanied by exceptional expansion in the 
years immediately following the passing of the Education Act of 1870, and the com- 
memoration of the centenary of Sunday Schools in 1880. 

In commemoration of its Jubilee, the Institute has raised a fund to assist in the 
extension of its existing operations and the inauguration of new work, the latter 
including the formation of Central Training Classes for the purpose of instructing 
Sunday School Teachers in the art of teaching, the founding of a Home of Rest for 
Sunday School Teachers, and the establishing of a fund for assisting the Clergy of poor 
jHirishes to hire Board Schools for Sunday School purposes. 

Publieationf. — An important part of the Institute's work consists in supplying 
suitable Manuals on Sunday School management and teaching. Notes of Lessons, 
coverins: the whole Bible and Prayer Book, and other publications for the use of Sunday 
School Teachers, a Sunday School Hymn Book, services of song and other musical pub- 
lications, registers, an<i other Sunday School material, are issued ; and the Institute also 
publirihcs three monthly Magazines, namely, the * Church Sunday School Magazine,' for

Schemes of Diocesan and Local Confederation of Church Schools are in operation in 
connection with this committee. 

The Associations in connection with the Diocesan Sunday School Association continue 
doing their work steadily. lietters of recognition to teachers are now issuoil by the 
Bishop, tenable after a period of five years* service ; a diocesan system of examination for 
elder scholars and for teachers has also been commenced. 

A Diocesan Association for maintaining the Keligious Education of boys and girls of 
the middle and upper classes has been forme<l. 

Further direction and encouragement are given to Sunday School work by the 
adoption of a Syllabus of Lessons, an<l by the use of forms of certificate and letters of 
recognition for teachers.

A Diocesan organisation (in connection with the Diocesan Mission) was instituted 
fonr years ago, consisting of a Central Council, with representatives from the Associa- 
tions existing in the various Rural Deaneries of the Diocese, who meet for an annual 
conference under the presidency of the Bishop ; a special feature being that each local 
secretary reports to the Bishop in person the work ol: his Association during the year — 
great care is also taken in the selection of reliable literature in connection with Sunday 
School work. Each Association arrang^es its own local meetings, and works on whatever 
lines it thinks best, but the Diocesan Missioners are ready to help whenever called upon 
to do so. Goo<i and substantial work has been done. 

The Second Triennial Festival of C'hurth Workers for the two Archdeaconries of 
Gloucester and Cirencester was held in the year 1895 in Gloucester, under this organis- 
ation. A large number attendetl the Festival Services in the Cathedral ana the 
(Conference in the Shirehall, under the presitleni.*y of the Bisliup.

Diocesan Sunday School Council. — This Council is continuing its work in accordance 
with the scheme which has been arranged, and which has been in operation for the last 
nine yean. 

To teachers not less than 25 years of Jige, already at work in Sunday Scliool.«, specially 
recommende<l by their ("lergy as havin-j: done efficient service to the C'hurch for at least 
five years, letters of recognition have been i)resented by the Bishop. During the past 
nine years over 1000 such letters have been issued. 

Examinations have been held for the past ten years. First, for teachers who had done 
good work for two years, ami were retomniendeil by their Clergyman. Secon<lly, for 
young persons, not under 14 years of age, who are prepare<l to enter on a three years* 
course of study, and to be examined at the end of each year. 

The Council recommend that in each Rural Deanery, or in two or more Rural 
Deaneries combined, a Sunday School Teachers' Union or Association should be kept 
actively at work. 

The members of such Unitm sliould meet, at least once a year, for the express object 
of deepening their spiritual life. 

The examination of Sumlay Scholars has been held for the past nine years on the 
second Sunday in Advent. Tlie Bishop giv«'S special prizes to the first chihl in each 
division, and other prizes are given to the children who are placed in the first class. 

In Salop there is a Union of Teachers with a general Festival meeting held once a 
year at various centres, and local meeting:s held in most of the towns. This year (1896) 
one teacher has presente:l himself for examination from this part of the Diocese, 
but about 300 senior and 500 junior Sunday scholars entered, being the selected scholars 
from the fKhools in the Archdeaconry.

with special sermon for teachers is held in some central church. There are special cele- 
brations of the Holy Communion at all the churches on the Day of Intercession for 
Sunday S ^hools, and a Prayer Meeting on the Sunday afternoon, at which a devotional 
address is given, and some 300 teachers attend. 

Ruridecanal Associations also exist in the BulweU, Gedling, and Mahsfield Rural 
Deaneries, and in the Derwent Valley, Newark, and Newbold districts. Annual confer- 
ences and services are held in these <listrict8 in some central place and well attended. 

A very large Soiree was held at the Castle, at which 2,000 Sunday School Teachers

The Diocesan Conmiittee is entrusted with the general superintendence of all Church 
Sunday School work in the Diocese. It consists of a Clei^;yinan and a layman elected by 
each of the Decanal Conferences, with other members added by the Diocesan Conference. 

A syllabus of lessons is drawn up annually. Parochial Church History Reading Classes 
are formed under the superintendence of the Diocesan Sunday School Committee, which 
are o[>rn to all Church-workers and others, and an Annual Examination {advanced and

The Diocesan Church Education Society provides a * Prize Scheme ' Examination for 
those who are not day scholars, and who have been present at not less than two-thirds of 
the Sundays during the previous twelve months. 

The Diocesan Inspectors inspect Sunday S.rhools when desired. 

There is an Annual Festival of Sunday School Teachers for the Archdeaconi^ of 
Worcest-er. The Conference was held on Tuesday, August 18, 1890, at Stratforcl-on- 
Avon, when about 100 Clergy and Teachers attendecl from twenty parishes in the Arch- 
deaconry. At twelve o'clock a meeting was held at which the special subject for 
discussion was * The Discipline of the Sunday School.' The afternoon was devoted to the 
sights of Stratford ; after tea at the Vicarage, there was Evensong in the Parish (Church, 
when a short address was given by the Vicar. 

In order to provide for the encouragement and improvement of Sunday Schools the 
Board of Education, when desired by the parochial Clergy, proxide lecturers to give 
lessons and addresses to teachers at certain selected centres in the several Rural Deaneries. 

The object of such lectures is to encourage and help Sunday School teachers in the 
method and matter of their work, especially with a view to the systematic teaching of the 
Catechism, ami the rest of the Book of Common Prayer, as well as of the Holy Scriptures. 

It is much to be regretted that the voluntary examination of Sunday School Teachers 
has come to an end owing to lack of cau<lidat^H. ' 

These suggestions are framed to meet a widespread desire that teachers should con- 
tinue, with increasing dofiniteness, to preimre the: children in the school-room ami 
elsewhere for catechetical instruction.

&iued, but the various lecturers were left to choose their own subjects. In this way 
lectures have been delivered during the past year at several centres throughout the 
Diocese ; being attended in nearly every case by appreciative and increasing audiences. 
The main subjects chosen were Scripture, the Creeds, English Church History, and

The Lincioln Diocesan Board of Education has since 1887 appointed an influential 
committee to organise and promote the diocesan scheme of Higher Education in 
Kt^lij^ious Knowledge. 

There are now seven centres in this Diocese, at aix of which lectures on the 
syllabus subjects have been given during the past year. The number of candidates 
Tor examination is still small, but those who offereil themselves on the last occasion 
lid very satisfactory work. The number of membei*s connected with the Society 
is 125.

In the year 1883 the Oxford Diocesan Board of Education appointed a Committee 
for Promoting Higher Keligioas Education. The work undertaken by the Committee 
was twofoM : 

(1) To stimulate, guide, and systematise religious teaching in upper and middle 
class schools on Church lines. 

(2) To promote the same systematic teaching among the educated classes in 

(1) The Oxford scheme suggests lines of study in the Bible, the Prayer Book, and 
Church History, and examines on them, but schools are allowed to offer their own 
subjects, and may be examined at their own terminal examinations. A small fee is 
exacted. Bishop's certificates are given to candidates who distinguish themselves. 

But the Oxford scheme is not confined to the suggestion of subjects and examin- 
ation. It aims at associating schools where the children of Church-peojile are 
educated in every way with the Bishop and Clergy of the Diocese. One step in this 
direction has been to meet the head-masters and principals of schools in conference. 
In July 1890 a Conference was held, under the presidency of the Bishop, with the 
masteis and principals of boys' schools, at which, among others, Eton, Wellington. 
Radley, and Bradfield were represented. In OctolMjr similar Conferences were hehi 
at Oxford and Reading with the principals of girls' schools, the Bishop of Reading 

The discussions at these Conferences were suggestive and interesting, and it is 
hoped will lead to good i*e8ults. In February 1895 the Bishop addressed a letter to 
Principals of Secondary Schools in the Diocese, calling their attention to the import- 
ance of the religious training; of their pupils, and it is hoped that this may lead to 
more schools joining the scheme of Diocesan Examination in Religious Knowledge. 

(2) In the second branch of the scheme for Higher Religious Education, the 
Committee, acting with the direct sanction and authority of the Bishop, suggests 
each year a course of study in (1) Holy Scripture, (2) the Prayer Book, (3) Church 
History, recommending at the same time books of reference, and arranging examin- 
ations, with certificates for those who pa^s. A simpler syllabus in the same three 
subjects is suggested for the use of parents and teachere who are carrying on 
F-duttation at home. Candidates may be exan)ined under the scheme as well. 

In connection with the course of reading for seniors, lectures are given in various 
parts of the Diocese. In 1895-6 lectures were delivered in twenty-four different 
^•entres, as against twenty in 1894-5. New centres have been formed this year, and it 
is hoped that lectures will be resumed in several other places where they were 
"ornierly held.

esau So(UPty for Promoting Higher Religious Education was founded in 
•oiiiotu the study of religious subjects, particularly of Holy Scripture, 
lose who are responsible to God for two great gifts — the gift of education 
ft of leisure. Local secretaries have been appointed at 16 centres to 
an interest in this movement, and there are at the present time 708 

A yearly syllabus is published and circulated among the members, giving 
ta of study for tlie year, and a list of books recommended. Occasional 
published to guide study. Libraries have been established at 17 centres. 
Lirsea of 4 to 6 lectures have been given during the past year. Although 
rt is not e<^ually maintained at all the centres, yet there is abundant 
hat the Society is doing useful work, especially in the smaller country 
lere there are fewer competing interests and engagements. Answers 
y members attending the lectures, and corrected by the lecturer in 
form an important feature of the work. At some centres popular lectures 
scribed sulyects have been given in the parish churches, and these have 
largely attended. It was resolved to offer prizes for essays by members of 
y on subjects tak<'n from the syllabus, and a prize was to be awarded 
<say of sufficient merit. The examiners received twenty-five essays, and 
1 result of this exjMjriment is deemed satisfactory, as showing the value of 
y in stimulating study among the more thoughtful of its members.

lurch Reading Society has now entered upon the sixth year of its existence. 
>se of the Society is to encourage systematic study of Holy Scripture, the 
ok and Church History. With this object a syllabus of study, together 
of selected books in circulation, and lectures are given at various centres, 
res to reading and as a means whereby those who attend them may learn 
oportions of various branches of research. The Society pursues its work on 
same lines as those societies in connection with the Central Society for 
J Higher Religious Education which have ])ecn formed in other dioceses in 
of England. It has now 7 centres in the Diocese — 4 in Derbyshire and 8 
gharnHhii-o, with a total of 346 members. A new feature of the Society's 
le past year has been the course of * Cameo* Lectures — a series of detached 
n eonnecttKl subjects — but the attendance at the two courses has not 
iraging. It is hoped that in the coming year there may be an increase both 
nber of centres and of members.

!esan Church Reading Society has been formed under the Presidency of the 
the Diocese of Tiiiro. Its object is the same as that of similar societies in 
coses, viz. to encourage by nu-ans of b-ctures and classes, with voluntary 
ons, the systematic study of (1) Holy Scripture, (2) Chur»;h History, 
"ceds, (4) Th(' Prayci- Book. A council, consisting of several Clergymen and

since 1891 at Truro, Bodmin, Falmoath, St Columb, Hayle, Laanoeston, Looe, 
I^ostwithiel, Penzance, and Stratton, and a few occasional lectures have been delivered 
elsewhere. Four small 'thivellinff libraries' have been formed. Owing to the 
sinalhiess of some of the centres, the great difficulty of communication with many 
parts of the Diocese, and lack of support in many quarters and interest in others, no 
rapid ))rogre8s can be expected, but in a few of the centres there are good and 
attentive audiences.

This Institute was founded in 1865 to investigate fully and impartially the most 
im{)ortant questions of Philosophy and Science, and more eapeoiallv anch at may bear 
upon the great truths revealed m Holy Scripture. It has, by its publiahed proceedingi, 
been found to meet a need felt at home and abroad, especially in India and our Colomei^ 
where the want of a true appreciation of the actual results of scientific inaniiy has Isd 
many to credit such statomeats as that ' Science and Philosophv were alike opposMl 
to Revelation,' and that ' the progress of Science has given a death-blow to all belief im 
the truth of the Bible.' 

The Institute, of which Sir G. G. Stokes, Bart., F.B.S., is president, oonnsts 
at present of 800 home and 500 foreign and colonial members and associates. Lord 
Kelvin and a considerable number of men of science t«ke part in its proceedings. Its 
supporters may Im» classed — firstly, as workers ; and secondly, those who approve of and 
desire to strentjthen its power for work. There is a good library of nifercnce. 

ConiHumications should be addressed to Captain F. Petrie, F.G.S., Hon. Secretary, 
Victoria Institute, 8 Adelphi Tenace, Loudon. 


In the Year-Book for 1884 (p. 185) an endeavour was made to trace 
the extent of the existing provision for higher education based upon the 
principles and teaching of the Church of England. The Report com- 
prehended a Tabular Record of Church of England Schools for Boys and 
Girls. The Council of the C'hurch Schools Company is in a position to 
report such progress as will afford encouragement for the complete 
success of the movement. The following pages will enable the reader to 
gather some idea of the existence and working of the several organisa- 
tions which are endeavouring to compass the education of a cla8.s of 
society which manifestly presents so many and strong claims to the care 
and guidance of the Church. 


The Statutes of many of the Cathedral Churches on the New Foundation make 
provision for and include upon the foundation masters and scholars of a Cathedral 
school. Sueh schools are, in fact, in direct succession to the schools maintained by the 
monastery before 1539. They claim, theri'fore, a liigh antirpiity. Schools at Canterbury 
exi^t4id in the time of Theodore of Tarsus, and at York in the days of AIcuiu. The 
f«>l lowing is the list of schools still on tlie Foundation of Cathedral Churches, and 
recognised as Church of England Schools by the Endowed Schools Act, 1869.

Origin. — In 1848 the Rev. N. Woodard founded a society of men united as Fellows of 
i College, to build, endow, and carry on schools with deiinite religious teaching; in 
kccordance with the doctrines of the Church of England, unfettered by any conscience 
clause. His first thought was for the middle and lower-middle classes, but ulti- 
nately his plan embraced the education on the same principles of the upper classes 
dso, although one school only (Lancing) has been as yet founded for these. 

Organiiation. — This when complete will include — (a) a central governing body, the 
Corporation of SS. Mary and Nicolas ; {b) five colleges, covering in their sphere of work 
the whole of England, each with its Provost and Fellows, who transact their business in 
^^hapters and College Meetings, and each providing Church education for boys and girls 
>f different classes m schools of three gi-ades, with three corresponding grades of charges. 
)f these five colleges, two are in active iteration : 1. ^*S^. Mary and Nicolas 0/ Lancing^ 
'or the Southern Division, of which the Bishop of Chichester is Visitor, with a first gi-ade 
ichool at Lancing, a middle-class school at Hur.stpierpoint, a lower middle-class school at 
irdingly, and also a girls' school at Bognor. 2. SS. Mary and John of Lichfield^ for 
:he Midland Division, of which the Bishop of Lichfield is Visitor, with a 
school at Denstone, a lower school nt Ellesniere, and also schools for girls 
it Abbots Bromley and Bangor. Another lower middle-class school is in course of 
srection at Worksop. Schools have also been est4ibli3hed at Dewsbury and at Taunton, 
Arhich will eventually belong to the Northern and Western Divisions when colleges for 
^hese have been founded. The eleven schools now open contain about fourteen hundred

The Church Schools Company dates its legal existence from July 1883, and was in- 
augurated at a pu})lic meeting m Willis's Rooms, with the Archbishop of Canterbury in 
the chair, who warmly commended the movement on the following lines : That the ob- 
ject should be to establish for boys and girls above the class attending elementary 
schools, schools of various grades, providing at a moderate cost a thoroughly efficient 
education in ac<'ordance witli tli« principles of the Church of England, the right of with-

Changes have been made whicli aie in keeping with the rapidity whiidi characterised 
the politics and ]>rogre8s of the Japanese nation. The Ecclesiastical changes are all in 
tlie direction of progress, extetision, and consolidation. An arrangement has been 
sanctioned by the Synod whereby Bishop McKim booonies Bishop of North Tokyo, and 
Bishop Bickerst€th of Sonth Tokyo. To the American Church has also been assigned 
the flistrict of Kyoto, for which it is expected that a Bishop will shortly be appointed. 
Soutii Japan or Kiushiu received a Bishop in 1894, in the person of Bishop Evington. 
In this district, and also in that of Yezo to the Xorth, the Anglican Missions are 
Bupfiorted by the Church Missionary Society, which maintains lUshop Evington, and a 
Bishop iu Yezo. Between Kyoto and Kinshiu there lie.s the district of Osaka with a 
population of 10 miiiion.s, ami in this district the two Societies support Missionaries, of 
whom by far the larger number arc connected with the Church Missionary Society. The 
appointment of a Bishop for this district, Bishop Bickersteth declared, was ' the most 
important step which can be taken at the present time.' 

The S.P.G. took no part in the pi'elinunary arrangements, but difficulties arose, and 
on January 2, 1896, the Standing Committee had the sui>ject brought before them by a 
lett«»r from His Grace the President, and guaranteed an income of 500/, per annum, and 
the cost of outward passage to the Bishop of 0.saka, leaving the selection of the Bishop, 
in accordance with the invariable custom of the Society, to the absolute and unfettered 
choice of the Archbishop of Canterbury. 

H. AMoa. — Tlie Society is at work in thirteen African dioceses, including the islands 
of St. Helena, Mauritius, and Madagascar, at an expenditure of more than 21,000/. 
yearly. Besides much work among natives in C-a])etown and other Dioceaes in close 
e«mnection with colonial work, there are famous stations such as Springvale, Herschel, 
Keuilcamma Hoek, Phokoane, and Thaba 'Nchu, the great and fruitful Mis-sions of the 
Diocese of St. John's, Kaffraria, those of Basutoland and Zululand, and the newer 
ventures in the Dioceses of Mashonalaud, Pretoria, and Lebombo. 

In the disturbances following the occupation of Madagascar by the French, the clergy 
have been exposed to great danger, but, let it be thankfully recorded, they none of them 
alloved their work to cease, and from actual hurt they have been preserved, although 
the Rev. £. O. McMahon and his family had to fly for their lives for five days and 
nights. At the capital itself the services in the Cathedral were suspended for only one 
day. The Bishop, who, after an unbroken stay of eight years, had come to England, 
Tetomed immediately to his post of duty and of danger when he realized that a changed 
eondition of things secular demandt^d his presence. 

Bishop Kestell-Comish, on his resignation, had given nearly twenty-three years of 
lenrice as Bishop. He leaves 10,000 members of our Communion, a beautiful Cathedral, 
many other churches, some of real beauty, 102 schools, eighteen native clergy, and a 
network of organisation ready for his successor. The Society has alrea<ly offered 
him its respectful congratulations on the work which he has been pennitted to 

m. Anf^ralaaia. — Grants to the Dioceses of Perth, North Queensland, Bockhanipton, 
lod Honoluln, to Fyi and Norfolk Island, are all that are now made for this large section 
9f the world where the Church owes so much to the Society in the past, but is now 
almost able to be inde]>endent- of outside help. 

Western Australia is now entering on a period of rapid immigration which the 
Society is helping the Church to meet. 

The Bishop of Perth writes, 'The Society has done a great work in enabling us to 
wnd two men to the Goidfields, one to the Murchison, the other to Coolgardie.' The 
Bishop has visited the whole of those districts, and he wrote that at Coolgardie people 
Were pouring in at the rate of a thousand a week.

ly. Ameriea and the West Indiei. — In this section of the world the Society spendi 
more than 14,000/. a year. This includes Hondnras, where the Society hiu latelj 
increased its aid. The Hishop writes : — 

* I hope the Committee will feel that my report of a year and a halfa work in thii 
diocese has justified the revival of the episcof>ate nero as separated from the Diooeaeof 
Jamaica. I thank thom and you most sincerely for the help you have given us. 
Owing to your kindness eight new districts have been formed—seven ave managed by 
clergymen (three of whom are partially paid by your Society), and one by a lawman, wbo 
works at his own charges. But the real work is only beginning. On every side God is 
opening doors, and Cidls are coming to occupy new ground. Thc| Oov^nrnment at 
Blewfields have offered us a site for a (Siurch and school, provided that the buildings ars 
begun at once. At least two new churches should be built this year, and seven Muiioa 
schools, and houses for the clergymen at Orange Walk, Kendal, Stann Creek, the Sibiif 
Uiver Mission, and at Monkey Kiver. At present some houses are lent to oa, and Ibr 
others we are paying rent * 

The Society issues three monthly magazines, the 'Mission Field/ the 'Gospel 
Missionary,' and the ' Children of the Churcn Magazine.' The meetingii of the Cnpoia* 
tion are held monthly. 

Address : The Rev. the Secretary, 19, Delahay Street, Westminster, S.W. . 


The year under review is the ninety-seventh year of the Society's existence, and in 
view of the approaching close of the Centenary, the Committee' have been led to invite 
their friends to combine in a Three Yeara' Enterprise leading up to the commemonitioa 
of the Society's Second Jubilee and Hundredth Anniversary. During the three year* 
the Committee desire to direct the thoughts of the Society to the special 'consideration 
of the great and world-wide work of evangelisation, and they call upon all their friends 
to rally round them in a resolute and prayerful effort to make the three years an epoch 
of development and extension in actual mission work all round the world.' 

The number of missionaries who sailed from tlus country during the year from Jane 
1, 1895, to May 31, 1896, was 156 ; of these, 73 went out for the first time in con- 
nection with the Society, 27 men and 46 women. The total number of European 
missionaries on the Society's list on June 1, 1896, was 970, viz. 364 clergymen, 94 
laymen, 299 wives of missionaries, and 213 women. There are also in the Society* 
service 338 native and country-born Clergymen, and 5,074 native lay teachers of all 
classes. Of the European missionaries 63 are honorary, drawing no allowance from the 
Society's funds ; 15 are partly honomry, drawing only a portion of the Usual allowance', 
46 are supported, as to their personal expenses, by individual friends of the missionaiy 
or of the Society ; and 108 by various bodien, such as the Gleaners' Union and iU 
branches, local C.M.S. Associiitions, &c. The Colonial Associations (New Sonth 
Wales, Victoria, New Zealand, and Canada) connected with the Society, who have 
authority to select and train and send out iniHsionaries, are res{)onsib)e for the main* 
tenance of thirty of the Society's missionaries. This number includes three clei^gymen 
and two ladies who were connected with the Wyclilfe College (Toronto) Japan Mission, 
now absorbed by the Canadian CM. Association. At iho urgent request of the 
Canadian Association, a Deputation from the Parent Society visited the Dominion, and 
during the hiBt three months of 1895 held numerous meetings in seven of the nine 
Dicceses of the ecclesiastical Province of Canada. 

The Society's receipts during the financial year ending March 31, 1896, amonntinl 
to 261,153/.— Associations 159,126/., Legacies 35,934/., Benefactions 27,519/., Con- 
tributions appropriated for special objects (including 8,868/. from Associations) 30,457/.| 
other receipts 8,11 71. — proved inadequate by some 1 ;'», 600/. to meet the year's cx{>euditore ; 
and as a deficit of 1,400/. was inherited from the previous year, a deficit had to be 
carried forward of over 17,000/. This was not due to any falling ofi" in the ordintiy 
income of the Society, but owing to the expenditure having risen in consequence of tte 
expansion of the work and the increase in the staff of missionaries.

I, West. — Bishop Ingham paid a visit in the summer of 1895 to the West 
t the invitation of the Bishop of Jamaica and his Diocesan Conference, and on 
[1 he expressed to the C.M.S. Committee his fervent hope that suitable spiritual 
r work in the Hinterland of Sierra Lecme would in due time be called forth from 
India Islands. The Mission was reinforced by a graduate of Oxford, an Islington 
a lady. Forty students of Fourah Bay College have passed the final B. A. Examin- 
ee the College was affiliated to Durham University in 1876. Fifteen of these have 
II the licence in theology, and eight others who did not graduate, obtained the 
I theology. The Grammar School celebrated its Jubilee in March 1895. During 
rears of its history, 1,661 pupils have been admitted. Over 250 "old boys" — all 
natives — assembled to honour the occasion, including an Archdeacon, a Canon, a 
^hajdain, several pastors, men in high rank in the Government service, mem- 
le Legislative Council, &c. One hundred pounds was contributed to a Jubilee 
lip Fund. Tlie School has 63 boardere and 83 day boys. The report of the 
a.storate Auxiliary affords evidence of good progress on the part of the people in 
nals of religion, and the support of their ministers. The income for 1895 was 
nore by 222/. than in the previous year. The Jubilee of the Yoruba Mission was 
i at Lagos in December 1895. Bishop Tugwell divided his time between the 
nd the Niger Missions. Bishop Phillips was at Ode Ondo the greater part of 
under review, and Bishop Oluwole was at Lagos, in charge of the Training

large proinjitioii of tlie chilthtMi in the schools at both Cairo and Old Cairo are 
<j6ltonm. 1 he brother of 0110 of tlio girls — a Pasha's daughter — thrciiteued, unless the 
osspels were changed for another reading-book, that lie wouhl spread a report; that the 
iiool his sister attended was for converting Moslems. * This is the only kind of reputation 
e ever want,' is the lady missionary's comment. A medical missionary and thtee 
idien joined the PalrMvne Mission, and an ordained missionary was transferred ftroni 
^^ypt. The Preparandi Institution at Jerusalem was full with 20 students ; the 
mep Gobat School had 62 pupils, including an Armenian orphan lad from tlio 
iifortunate Diaibekr district ; and the girls' school had 12 boarders and 146 day 
(holars. Encouragements in the work among Mohammedans are reftrred to with 
'ti«?ence by the missionaries from motives of i)nidence. An Egyptian Moslem was 
iptised on Palm Sunday 1895 at Jaffa. The village work around Jenisalem affords 
»nch encouragement. One of the ladies writes : * It is interesting and delightful to see 
niHi of these poor women's minds little by litlh? opening to understand and grasp 
>m«thing of the love of Christ.' Similar expressions of opinion and t^jstimonies of 
>readingaml deepening influence uiK)n the charatiter and homes of the people come from 
AmaUah, Bir Zeit, Jaffa, Lydd, Nablous, Haifa, Kefr Yasif, and Acca, at each of 
hich one or more ladies are stationed. The Gaza hospital had 219 in* and 14,277 out- 
atients. Some of these, belonging to influential Moslem families, showed a marked 
itereet in the Gospel message. Attempts were made during the year to close the 
lissien Hospital at Vablous, but they did not succeed. Over 10,000 out-patients and 
20 in-patients were treatetl. Indications are not wanting to show that the medical 
rork ia breaking down the prejudices of the people. The Persia Mission was reinforced 
y a eleiigynian of experience and his wife, from Melbourne, and a lady was also taken 
p in the Mission m * local connection.' There was less of open and pronounced 
p|K>sitio9t daring the year than in the two previous years. Bishop Stuart called upon 
e^vcral of the principal mullahs in Ispahan, and wsis received couiteously ; he also spent 
'?veral weeks in the country districts, and met with a very friendly reception from all 
laeees. At Julfa 50 adult Church membera of the Armenian congregation were 
onfirmed, and on Christmas Day the number of communicants was 111. A Sayyid wae 
taptised in February 1895, and an old Persian villagei* and two converts from Ni^ifaliad 
11 Mar^, and all suffered much persecution in consequence, the eld man being brutally 
logged again and again. On Good Friday 1895, a young married woman and her Uttfc 
loy, of a village near to Julfa, were baptised — the first Persian woman in connection 
dtli the Mission. The convert was repeatedly Hogged by her relatives, onoe with 
. chaiu so severely that she fuinted. Subse([uently she was taken by the Prinue 
lovemor as sei-vant to one of the ladies of his haiem, and thus protected from violence. 
)r. Carr's hospital work went on (piietly ; 234 in-i>ati('nt8 were received ; 10,587 
ttended the women's dispensary, notwithstanding an order of the mullahs forbidding 
hem to do so. Miss Bird visiU>d in Ispuhaii. On one occasion she was asked to see 
he suffering daughter of a dervish, and found over 20 other sufl'frers collected, who 
iiere told by anotncr daughter of the dervinh to *sit ([uiet while the htkim prays. She 
I not an infidel ; she always ])rays first and X\w.\i wlh her ]>atiint.s.' Two ladies from 
iyduey joined the little l)and of workers in Binjiohci. Opi>osition wns at one time raised, 
nd an attempt ma^le to close the hospital, but a petition in its favour was signed by 
ome 320, mostly men of influence and position — Mohammedans, Jews, and Christians — 
ml the opposition immediately ceased. Permission has been obtained from the Turkish 
roverunieut to open a Mission school. 

lindia.— The Mission-fields of the C.M.S. in India are, for the greater part, in what is 
ailed British territory. In a few instances, howev»u*, as in Kashmir, Travancore, and 
■oehiii, and some others, they are in *Protoct«Hl * Native. Statas. The Nisjam's dominions 
ontaiu stations connecteil on the one yiile with the Western India Mission, and on the 
ther side with the Telugu Mission, South India. The various fields are di\'ided, 
uiinly following the Diocesan divisions, into Boi)^;il (Diocese of Calcutta), Noith-West 
'roviuces (Diocese of Lucknow), Punjab and Sindh (Diocese of lAhore), Western India 
l>io<>.»stj of Bombay), South luilia (Diocoso. of M;nlriis), and Travancore (Diocese of 
ravancore and Cochin). Several races and Im^uagt'.s are found in OAch division, and 
le operations of the Society are carried on in tiftct'n dilloront tongues, not counting 
ersian and Arabic, which are needed in some pla(j«\s.

Bengal. — Two Cambridge graduates and two Islington men in orders, one layman, 
and two ladies joined the aisS[ of the Bengal Mission. At Calcutta seventeen men 
studied iu the Divinity Class, the Principal of which also superintends the Book D^pot, 
where 6,050 Scripture portions in the vernacular were sold during the year. The 
Christian Boys' Boarding School had 80 on its rolls, 20 of whom were, however, day- 
boys. The Garden Roach High School had 250 boys, three-fourths of whom were Hindusy 
M'hilc tlie Mattiaburj Middle School had 125, most, if not all, of whom were Mohamme- 
dans. The Girls' Boarding School, with 107 ])upils, 78 being boarders, now occupiei t 
new building. The band of Associated Evangelists has an extensive district of Calcutts 
for itH sphere, enclosed by the Hooghly, tne Bow Bazaar, and the CanaL Ei^t 
}>rcacliing stations are so many centres of evangelistic work, and hospitals are visited. 
Two adults were baptised, one of them a Sanscrit scholar, the other a Mohammedan. In 
the Nadiya district there has been encouragement in the pastoral work. The contriba- 
tions of the Church Council funds increased by Ks. 200. The Missionary iu cbaige of the 
evangelistic work in the neighbourhood of Krishnagar says that aiitagoniam to Christ 
has given way to a persistent attempt to incor|)orate Uini into Hinduism ;.that one of 
the Gospels has been versified in the vernacular, and that the Hindus have commenced 
to make a tmnslntion of the Bible, and have published at their own expense St 
Matthew's Gospel, with a Hindu commentary. The Associated Evangelists at San- 
tirajpur have a district of 500 sq. miles and a population of 850,000 for their itinera- 
tions. With the full staff in constant activity it is barely possible to compass Um 
district once in two years. At Burdwan there is a growing spirit of inquiry. In con- 
nection with the JSatUdl Church Council there are 2,900 Christians — Santals, Paharis, 
and also some language is Hindi and Bengali. Over four tons of rice was given at 
the harvest festivals. A * S|N>cial Mission ' for the agents was held at Taljhari in Jane. 
The superintending missionary writes highly of the steady, systematic way in which the 
agents labour. Six agents ai-e sni)i)ortcd by the Native Mis.sionary AssociatioiL Tlif 
nii.»wionary at Bhagsilpur pleads earnestly for evangelists for the province of Behar, 'with 
fifteen millions of people who havi- never heard the Gosjk'I.' 

North-West and Central Provinces. — Bisho]^) Clifford has drawn the Society's atten- 
tion during the year to tlie vast ruial districts in his diocese which are cx)mplefely un- 
evangelised. Three Islington men (two ordained) and one lady (for l^ew South 
Wales) were ad<le<l to the staff. The Allahabad Divinity School prejjenteil its fiist can- 
didate to the Oxford and Cambridge Preliminary Kxamination for Holy Orders in 1895; 
he took a second class. Tlie students took part regularly in bazaar preaching. In 
Bfiiares the (charge of the Jai Narayan's school, and the supervision of the bazaar 
}>reaching, rests on the veteran missionary, thr Kev. B. Davis. Gorakhpur and B.isti, 
two adjoining districts, with an agjregate ]top.ihition of nearly five millions, are practic- 
ally left to the C. .M.S., but the staff consists of only two European and 34 native a^nt". 
Six adult converts were baptised, one of them a Mohammedan Begum. Eleven adults 
were bajitised by the Kev. W. McLean at Agia. St. .lohn's College sent up its first two 
candidates for the M.A. examination during the year, and jiasscd them. I'ifteen paised 
the B.A., one obtaining double-Hrst honours — the only examinee so distinguished. An 
old student, now a native jinlge, wrote to the IMincipal attributing his success in the 
Government service to hi-* obsc^rvante of the 'lessons of t rath, honesty, and morality' 
which he was taught in the Co^.lege. Kighty-five of the 620 students are boanled in tlie 
Christian Hostel, under the charge of a missionary. Seven adults were baptised at 
Aligarh. The Kev. A. K. Bowlby mentions, as a sign of the progress the Gospel w 
making, that three Zenana hospiUils in his ilistiict are under the charge of Hindustani 
Christian ladies. Eh;ven convf-rts of the domestic servant class were l»apti.sed at 
Muss K)rie. The Associated Evangelists among the Gonds of the Central Pfwintes 
jmrsued their itinemtions with many encouragements ; one of them visited with his 
catechists over three hundred villages. They had many proofs that the Gospel is 
becoming widely known, and is remenilu'red by many. Seven adult* were baptise*!. 
The headciuarters of the Bhil Mission are at Kherwara. There is comparatively little 
jnogress to r«'i>ort. A man and his wife were biij)tised on Christmjis Day, 1894, making 
twenty-four baptisms since the Mission was commenced in 1880. 

Pnnjab and Sindh Mission. — Four (►rdained graduates and one lavman reinforced the 
Mission. One native was admitted to Deacon's Orders. Amritsar and the district imme- 
diately around present undoubted evidence of dinjinishing prejudice against Christianity,

and the missionaries find it necessary to increase their caution in receiving converts Ly 
baptism into the Church in proportion as opposition decreases. Twenty-one adults were 
baptised. The Amritsar Boys' High School has 486 pupils, some of whom have changed 
their attitude towards Christianity during the year under review. The ludy missionaiies 
at Amritsar and Clarkabad write brightly of their work in the Alexandra School, the 
Middle Class Girls' School, and among the women. Among fourteen baptised at Tai*u 
Taran were three lepers. The Baring High School at BaUila has 65 boys, all Christians, 
and all boarders except three. Some of them are from places 800 miles distant About 
twenty-five per cent, of the old pupils are engaged in evangelistic work a.s ordained mis- 
sionaries, catechists, and school -masters. The Divinity School at Lahore had five 
students during the year. At Kangra and at the inelas (religious fain) in the Kangra 
Valley there is an increasing sale of the Scriptures. A leper was baptised at the Dharni- 
sola Leper Asylum, and a convert from Monammcdanism ut Multan. At Srinagar, the 
capital of Kashmir, the various agencies aim at infiucucing all classes ; the Mediciil 
Mission work is ehietly among the Mohammedans of the city and villages, and the 
C.KZ.M.S. ladies visit the women, many of whom are Sikhs, in their homes. The most 
encouraging sign in the work at Peshawar is the evident interest displayed by many in 
God's Word. At the Dera Ghazi Khan and Fort Munro Hospitals 232 in-patients and 
6,070 out-patients were treated, and had the Gospel preached in theii* hearing. Nearly 
15,000 visits of out-patients were registered at the Quetta Hospital, and there were 165 
in-patients. Two Hindus and two Mohammedans were liaptised at Karachi, in Sinilhy 
and a man of the sweeper caste at Hydrabad. 1,627 X)ortious of Scriptures were sold 
from the Karachi Book Depdt. 

Weitem India. — A graduate of London University joined this Miasion. Seven 
adults were baptised from among the 155,000 Mohammedans of Bombay at the beginning 
of 1895. Lieut. -Col. Freeman found access to the Parais through the help of a Parsi 
convert. Three Parsis were baptised. There were seven adult baptisms in connection 
with the Gujerathi congregation. The Robert Money School has 210 pupils. lu the 
course of 1895, five Brahmans, one of them a hereditary priest, were baptised at Nasik ; 
the event caused much excitement among the Hindus of that place. At Junir the 
Mohammedans were very eager to discuss religious questions in consequence of the 
baptism on Whit-Sunday, 1895, of a Mohammedan sweeper. Four adult converts were 
baptised at Aurungabad. 

f - 

South India. — The additions to the staif consisted of two ordained men. Five 
natives were admitted to Deacons' Orders. Four students of the Divinity School at 
Jiadrcu were presented for the Oxford and Cambridge Preliminai-y, and all passed. 
Altogether, 13 of the students have passed since 1888 : five in the first, six in the 
second, and two in the third class. The first of the Greek Testament prizes offered by 
Bishop Gell was won by one of the students, for the sixth time since 1886, besides two 
•econu prizes during the same period. A native pastor has ready access to some 200 
houses of educated Hindus in difiereut parts of Madras, and is welcomed at the meetings 
of the literaty societies recently formed by young Hindus. Twenty adults were baptised 
at Zion Church, ten at Mount Pastorate, eight at Ootacamund, and six in the Wynaad. 
The Mission in the Nilgiris and the Wynaad has greatly extended. The Noble High 
School at Masulipatam, in the Tdugu, Mission witnessed the baptism of one of its 
pupils, a Brahman, after repeated efforts had been made by his family to dissuade him, 
and the usual painful scenes had been enacted. Fifty-nine adults were baptised in the 
Kllore district. The work spreads in the villages of the Khammamett district. Bishop 
Cell made a visitation of the Telugu Mission in the winter of 1895-6. His tour extended 
over two months, and involved a large ahiount of travelling by rail and road and river, 
a serious undertaking for one in the thirty- Bfth year of his episcopate. The Preparandi 
Institution, at Palamcotta, in Timuvcllyt has some 40 students. Out of twelve 
candidates for the Matriculation Examination from the High School in the same town, 
ten passed, all Christian lads — 80 per cent. ; whereas only 20 per cent, from the whole 
Pniaidency were successful. Over fifty ordained native pastors minister to the congrega- 
tions scattered over the district. They arc each assisted by a small number of 
evangelists, catechists, and school-masters and mistresses. The itinerating missionaries 
and their native helpers visit these pastorates, and both help them and arc helped by 
them in making Christ known to the Heathen.

Japan. — By mutual arrangement between Bishops Bickersteth . and McKim, the 
itter of the American Episcopal Church, the main island of Japan has been divided into 
5iir 'missionary jurisdictions,' two to be under bishops of the American Church, and 
wo under bishops of the Church of England. Bishop Awdiy has been appointed Bishop 
f the Osaka jurisdiction, and Bishop Bickersteth retains the jurisdiction of South 
'okio. For the northern island of Hoklcaido, the Rev. P. K. Fyson, a missionary of the 
Society in Japan since 1874, has been appointed. Four ordamed men and six ladies 
*ere added to the Society's staff during the year. Two natives were admitted to 
)cacons' Orders. Twenty- four adults were baptised in the Matsuye district, in the 
Mocose of Osaka, and iifteen alt Tokushima and out-stations. An ordained man and two 
adies were added to the staff at work in the Diocese of S&iUh Tokio, and the C.M.S. 
taff was further increased by the addition of the Wycliffe College Mission, now amal- 
;amated with the Canadian CM. Association. A Leper Hospital was opened during 
he year at Kumamoto, in the Diocese of Kiu-shiu. Bishop Evingtou confirmed 38 
candidates. Three adults were baptised in the Loo Clioo Islands, the first-fruits among 
:he actual natives of these islands. A grievous disappointment was experienced at 
3yamada in the apostasy of t\velvc heads of families. Bishop Evington visited the 
Dioceso of Hokkaido from June to August 1895, and confirmed 79 Japanese and 46 
Ainu. A meeting of the Church Council and the first meeting of the Missionary Con- 
ference were held during the Bishop's visit. The Kev. W. Andrews writes, 'The 
catechists are becoming every year more alive to the importance of keeping in order the 
machinery of the Church, and the members of the several congregations accordingly are 
beginning to value their Church privileges more.* Two churches were built for the 
Ainu, of whom 102 were baptised. 

Hew Zealand. — The Society's Missions are confined to the North Island, and are 
under the charge of a C.M.S. Mission Board, consisting of the three Bishops of Auckland, 
Waiapn, and Wellington, three missionaries, and three laymen. This Board administers 
the funds proceeding from lands given in the early days for the support of the Mission, 
supplemented by an annually diminishing grant from the Society. Three natives were 
admitted during the year to Deacons* Orders by Bishop Williams of Waiapu. In 
Auckland Diocese there are now sixt<?eu Maori clergymen. Two new churches were 
built ; one in the * King Country ' was erected by those who had been Hauhaus, but 
who, since the death of the late Maori * King,' have returned to the Church. In the 
Diocese of Waiapu the former followers of the late Maori * prophet,' Te Kooti, have in 
several villages resumed attendance at the church services. In Wellington Diocese the 
return is reiiorted of all thetHauhaus and Te Kootiites and many of the Mormons in tho 
district of Wairarapa. 

Korth- West Canada. — The C.M.S. Mission is to tlu; remnant of the Red Indian tribes 
scattered over the vast country formerly known as tho Hudson's Bay Territory, now 
included in the Dominion of Canada. What was oiipe the Diocese of Rupert's Laud has 
Iteen more than once sub-divided, and there are now eight dioce^*s, in all of which are 
C.M.S. stations. In n^.any parts th« work is in a large measure pastoral, but here and 
there the old Heathenism is still in force. A new station was opened in 1895 at Valley 
River, in the Diocese of Rupert's Land. Bishop Newnham visited the northern part of 
the Diocese of Moosoii€4i in the summer, travelling about two thousand miles. Much of 
the country traversed had never before had an episcopal visitation. I/ctters were 
i«c4'ived in November from Cumberland Sound. Over forty of tho Eskimo had learned 
to read, and many could repeat the Lord's Prayer and Ten Commandments. On one 
occasion the seal-skins covering the little church were devouied by starving dogs. The 
Eskimos in Repulse Bay, in the Arctic Circle, were reached from Fort Churchill, and 
those in Frobisher Bay from 151acklead Island. A clergyman from Eastern Canada 
ioiufd the stAff in the Cnltjunf Dioci'm-. lUsIiop Young of At/mbasra spent six months 
in visiting the stations, and was encouraged juul tluinklul to observe the i>[»irit of the 
workers, of whom he wrote that they were 'not only seeking to do their duty, hut jue

proving themselyes true Boul-winnen.' Bishop Reove of Mdetenxie Biver^ in tbt 
autumn of 1895, visited tlie Eskimo near the mouth of ICaekensle Bi?er and on Hendul 
Island. At the latter place a blacksmith's shop served for a church, and the anvil for a 
readiuG^-desk, and there was a daily congregation of about thirty. Biiihop Bompas of 
Selkirk wrote in July 1895, that for two years he had been unable to leave Bnxtoa 
because he had no one to leave in his stead, but on the arrival of a new labourer bi 
hoped to find an opportunity to move about his vast diocese. 

British Columbia. — Bishop Ridley of Caledonia returned to the MiMkm in Hay 
1895. At Metlakahtla a band of voluntary native evangelists, or 'Chnreh Army,' 
now numbers thirty members. Mrs. Bidlejr manages a lar|^ branch of the White Cm 
Society. The work at the salmon canneries among Indians, Japanese, Chineae, and 
whites is carried on amidst scenes of drunkenness and gambling, but k manifestly

as a thankoffering to God, and as a gift towards the coat of erecting a new ohoreh. At 
Hazelton, on the Skeena River, and Giatwangak there were 24 adult baptiama, and 16 it

Address to the Secretaries, Church Missionary House, Salisbury Square, London, E C. 


This Society is now in its seventeenth year of work. It was established upon ita pre- 
sent basis in April 1880 to work in co-operation with the Church Missionary Sodetr, iti i 
object being to make known the Gospel of Christ to the women of India in accordance 
with the Protestant and Evangelical teaching of the Articles and formularies of the 
Church of England. By its constitution also, it was free to engage in similar work in 
other heathen or Mohammedan countnes. It took over in 1880 17 stations, with a 
staff of 36 European ladies (of whom 14 are still upon its roll), 25 assistants, and about 
100 Bible-women and native Christian teachers from the original Society — The Inditn 
Female Normal School and Instruction Society — which since 1851 hart been working 
for the same object, and still is working on undenominational lines in India. Of the 
stations transferred to the new Society all, with th«i exception of Jabalpur in the 
Central Provinces and Mirat in the North-West Provinces, were in Bengal, the Punjab, 
and South India. It is within these provinces that the development and extension of 
the Society's Indian work has mainly been confined. Three stations have been occni»ied 
in Sindh— Karachi in 1880, Hyderabad in 1885, and Sukkur in 1888. In 1887 Mia 
Hull went to begin work in Kashmir, and Dr. Fanny Butler followed in the next yeir 
as a medical missionary to women. 

During the past year the returns, as far as received, speak of 5,311 pupils receiving 
i*egular instruction in Zenanas, of which the Bible is an essential element, from onr 
Missionaries and their assistants. Not less than 9,137 girls have been in attendance in 
211 schools. Girls are seldom allowed to continue to attend school after the age of t<'n 
or eleven, but in many cases their instniction is continued after their marriage in the 
Zenana, of which they have become inmates. In Tinnevelly no less than 53 Bible- 
women are employed in giving Scripture teaching to pupils in Zenanas. 

Villa^ Missions, which were begun by Miss Clay in the Punjab from Jandiala as 
a centre m 1880, are now carried on during the cold season, from at least 9 centres in 
the Punjab, and also in connection with several of the stations in Bengal and Tinne- 
velly, with ver}' encouraging results. The statistical reports of the Indian Missions 
spciik of at least 2,470 villages having been A^sited. The importance of this branch of 
work is seen in the fact that about 90 |M>r cent, of the population of India is found in 
the villages. 

Medical Missions are also found one of the most successful agencies for opening tlw 
way to the Gospel both among the town and the vilhif^o jKipulations. The Society has 
long had St. Catherine's HospitAl at Amritsur, with its :i dispensaries. In Peshawar 
and at Bangalore new hosj»it;il.s hav*' betii built. Iioth of these are under the charge of 
fully qualified medical laduts, and a hidvMloctor has made an encoumging beginning nt 

flM66ionan? ^leaves Seeociation. 233 

letta, on the Afghan frontier. Four fnlly qualified lady-doctors have been added to 
e staff this autumn, one of whom will take charge of the medical work at Ratnapore 
the Nuddeo District in Bengal. Dispensaries are opened at several stations, and in some 
them small nursing wards have been opened in which those who require lengthened 
>atment are received. In some cases the disi)en8ary is in the chai^ of native Christian 
lies, who have been trained for the work. 

The Society also takes its share in Edaoational Work. Besides supplying the teach- 
^ staff at the C.M.S. Alexandm High School at Aniritsar, the Sarah Tucker Institu- 
iD at Palamcottali, and the Girls' Boarding School at Krishuagar, it also has its own 
)rmal School at Calcutta, for the training of native Christian teachers ; and Training 
[>inesfor Assistant Missionaiies have been started at Amritsar and Baranagore, near 

In 1883, on the urgent appeal of the C.M.S., a special Chitm Fund was started, and 
lady sent to help in training Bible-women and visiting in the homes of Chinese ladies 
Foochow. At the present time the Society occupies 8 stations, and has 28 ladies on 
I roll of workers in the Fuh Kien Province, and 5 new missionaries are about to join 
e Mission at the end of the year. The massacre of the 1st of August, 1895, has had 
e effect of arousing a wide-spread spirit of enquiry in the province, Rud of stimulating 
ther than checking offers of service. Miss Codrington, the sole survivor of the 
aasacre, will accompany the outgoing band of new workers. 

In 1889 two ladies were sent at the invitation of, and mainly through Funds raised by, 
le Rev. J. Ireland Jones, to Ceylon, to open a school for the daughters of Kandyan 
liefs. There are now 14 pupils under instioiction. A fourth lady has been added, who 
working among the village women in the neighbourhood of Kandv. 

Twenty-six new ladies have been added to the Society's staff duiing the past year, 
lising the total number in Home connection to 203. Five of these are sent from Aus- 
iilia. There are also 90 Missionaries and assistants in local connection, and 637 native 
ible-women and teachers. In 1880 the income was 13,500^. ; during the year ending 
Urch 31, 1896, the ordinary receipts were 32,106/. The Society is at present com- 
Htted to an expenditure of at least 6000/. above the average income. 

The magazines of the Society are India's Women, monthly, \d,, and Daybreak,

)woiKATED in the efforts of the friends of some Missionaries of the C.M.S. to assist 
iem in their work. A monthly paper was first issued in 1868 as a means of communi- 
ation between Missionaries of tlie C.M.S. and their friends at home. In 1870 an 
tssociation was formed, and took its title from the * Missionary I^eaves,' which had 
leen issued monthly. 

The objects of the Association are to supply the Missionaries and stations of the 
I M.S. with help in money and material towai-ds such requisites as it is not in the 
rovince of the Society to supply, but which aid nevertheless is found to be most help- 
il in the various works unaertaken by the M issionaries. Most of the members of the 
ommittee are members of the C.M.S. Committee. 

The funds of the Association are expended upon the maintenance of children in 
,M.S. mission schools ; the erection of mission churches, schools^ &e. ; the purchase of 
le accessories of public worship, such as church furniturcr bells, books, harmoniums, 
c. ; and towards Missionary Diocesan Funds, and other similar objects. During 
le year 1892, 218 children were supported in missioli schools, and funds provided for 
Le mainten.ince of ten catechists and teachers, three divinity students, and fifteen 

Daring the last twenty-two years the Association has received and forwarded contri- 
itions in money to the amount of 62,852/., and in goods to the value of 36,159/. 

In the year 1884 'the C.M.S. invited the Association to administer the funds pro- 
ied for * Special Objects,' and to receive, pack, and forward goods intended for par- 
rnlar mission stations. The work of the Association has thus been greatly enlarged.

Summary of Work, 1805-90 

During the year the usual work of lecturing, preaching, and inter- 
viewing has been carried on. Also the work at the Bishop's College ; 
the two schools for native Christian boys in connection with it, and St. 
James's School for Eurssians. A hostel for native students has been 
opened near the Mission-House. In addition to these, mission worft in 
the Sunderbuns and Burrisal has been superintended by one of the 
Missionaries. The Mission has also the care of two native Christian 
congregations in Calcutta. The present staff of the Mission is made up 
of eight Priests, six English and two Bengali, and three Bengali lay- 
men. More men are uraently needed if the present work is to be carried 
on, and the calls for help in other parts responded to. 

Address : The General Secretary, 92 Belgrave Koad, S.W. 

This Mission to North India was originated in 1876, with the object 
of carrying on educational and evangelistic work. St. Stephen's College 

Prepares students (now over 80) for the d^^ree examinations of the 
'unjab University. New College buildings were opened in 1891, and 
there is an hostel for Christian students. St Stephen's High School 
and the Branch Schools (with some 700 pupils) are also in charge of 
the Mi sion; and a Boarding House for Christian boys adjoins the 
S.P.G. Misbion House in which the brotherhood now reside. The 
Mission is responsible for services in Urdu in St. Stephen's Church, and 
for the pastoral chu^e of the Native Christians. Classes are held for 
the instruction of catechists, schoolmasters, &c. Evangelistic work 
among Hindus and Mahommedans is carried on in Delhi, and in other 
parts of the South Punjab. 

Six Missionaries are stationed at Delhi, and two at Bohtak. Addi- 
tional Missionaries are very urgently needed. 

A Hospital for Women, Girls' Schools, Zenana teaching, &c., are 
carried on by S.P.G. Mission Ladies.

* to aid in the building up and strengthening of the Church in India 
with primary reference to the needs of the Europeans and Eurasians.' 
This appeals in the first place io those who by work and residence in 
India personally know the more or less needy classes for whose benefit 
the Association exists. It has next a strong claim on those who are 
practically the employers of Europeans or Eurasians in the railways, 
tea plantations, &c., whence dividends are looke<l for towards the income 
enjoyed in England. 

This Association alone represents the English Church at home to the 
Eurasian and poor European, ro often lonely and dangerously isolated, 
in India ; the Committee represents English experience of their wantp, 
and the Church's breadth iu its ministries to them. The Afsociation 
does not originate or control Christian agencies in India, but gathers 
funds with a sympathy groundetl on knowledge, and freely hands them , 
to th^ workers on ^e spot, ;

Summary of Work, 1895-98 

The principle of the As? o iation — viz., to aid, without int 
the work of the Church in ludia uuder the control of tin 
working in council with the Cltrgy ami hiity — will coninn 
afresh to tho.w who from experience havi? learnt to trust suel 
ment, or who on principle maintain that our home Societit 
wlienever their efforts show this characteristic. 

All communications should be addressed to the Hon. Sec. 
A. O. Hardy, Smarden Rwtorj*, Kent. 

The aim of the Mission has been clearly set forth h 
addrehsetl to the Patriarch of Antioch by the Arclibishop of ( 
before the departure of the Mission Clei^. * Our object in »* 
these two l*riests is not to bring over these (Tiristiana to 
muniou of the Church of England, nor to alter their ec« 
customs and traditions, nor to change any doctrine^s held 
which are not contrary to that Faith which the Holy Spirit 1 
as necessaiv to be bejii?ved by all Cliristiaus, but to encoiura^ 
bettering their religious couditiuu, and to strengthen an anciei 
which, tlirough iguorauot? from witliin and persecution fron 
cannot any longer stand alone, but without some assist^i 
eventually succumb t^ the external organisations at work in 
8till, whilst guarding against tlie mistake of making Anglic^ 
memlKTs of an ancient Oriental (^hurch, care will be takei 
uix>n the neces.,ity for th(* adoption by the Assyrian Churd 
* forms of sound words* which enshrine the Faith, if th 
Church is to b* restored once more to communion with ' 
Catholic an«l Apostolic Church.' 

The Mirsion has already establishetl one S^nniniry, 1

This Association was formed in 1880 by a union of the Maritzburg 
(Natal) ('huTch and Mission Aid Society and the Guild of the Most 
Blessed Savioiu: (Natal). In 1881 a ( -hildren's Association was formed 
to support by their contributions native children in various Homes in 
the Diocese. The field has now been extended to embrace Indian 
chihlren and European orphans. There are now 82 branches of the 
M.M.A., and the receipts for 1894 amounted to 592/. 12n. 8^/., in addition 
to sums received by the Treasurer of the Sisterhood. During the same 
period the receipts from the Childrtn's Association have amounted to 
32/. 14.'*. 5^/. A quarterly account of the work in the Diocese is pub-

The Diocese consists of Zululand, Swaziland, Maputalaud, and a 
certain portion of the Transvjud, which was adtleil in 1891 by the 
Provincial Syno<l. The population is considerable, but impossible to ; 
<*stimate. The greater nia.sM of the people is at present untoucheil. In j 
Maputalaud there is not one single native (Christian, in 8wazilan<l very 
few. There are 16 Priest's, one being a Zulu, (3 Deacons, 3 of whom are 
natives, besides Rcveral lay helpers. S.P.G. pays the stii^ends of 3 
Clergy and allows 2(^)/. a year besidts. The lowest estimate of the 
working expenses in Africa alone is 1,800/. a year. With the exception 
of 47/. 5.N\ 8</., which is proiluced by interest on investments, the 
Mission is entirely dependent upon voluntary contributions and sub-

tension of the mission field. Three new stations with churches have 
b^n recently opened, and a large boarding-school has been erected on 
the Isles de Los. Another station has been opened further inland, on 
the Great Scarcies Kiver; and a Girls' Boarding School has been 
opened at Isles de Los. The Diocese of Jamaica has during the past year 
sent out two Mi&sionaries. 

Address : Bev. A. H. Barrow, Billingshurst, Sussex. 

These Missions were founded in 1887 by the Bishop of the Church of 
Sngland in Japan, and are carried on under his direct supervision. 
The S.P.G. gave a simi of 600/. towards their foundation, but they are 
now supported by the St. Paul's Guild, a society with a membership of 
over 3000 persons, who in England and elsewhere are interested in 
Church work in Japan. The Guild collects annually about 2000/. 

St. Andrews Mission has a staff of fix graduate Clergy and an 
Associate, who undertak-B the charge of a Divinity School, night classes 
for studenta, educational work in two important Japanese Colleger, and 
superintend five mission districts which can be worked from St. Andrews 
House as the centre. 

St. Hilda's Mission has a staif of nine lady members, two of whom 
are trained nurses, and an Associate. It maintains a Boarding School 
for girls, two Dispensaries and a system of District Nursing, an Orphan- 
age, a Home for Japanese Mission Women, and carries on evangelistic 
work in various parts of Tokyo. 

All further information with regard to these two Missions, and the 
St. Paul's Guild, may be obtained from the Secretary of the Guild, The 
Palace, Exeter. 

The Society was founded in memory of the Rev. J. A. Robinson, lato 
scholar of Christ's College, Cambridge, who died at his work in the em- 
ployment of the C.M.S. at Lokoja, Niger Territories, on June 25, 1891. (1) 
The aim of the Association is to carry on his work by providing for a 
thoroughly scientific study of the Hausa language, with a view of pro- 
moting the higher inter^ts of that people, and of translating the Scrip- 
tures iato their tongue. (2) To secure the objects of the Association 
the Executive Committee have decided to endeavour to appoint two 
* Robinson Students,' conversant with Arabic or Hebrew, whose pre- 
liminary labours would be carried on in the comparatively temperate 
climate of Tripoli, with a view to their proceeding at a later date to the 
Central Soudan. The primary work of the * Robinson Students ' will 
be to study the language and customs of the Hausas, and to gather 
materials for translations of the Scriptures. In August 1894 Rev. C. 
H. Robinson left Ix>koja for the interior of the Soudan, he having been 
chosen as the * First Student.' In July 1895 he returned to England 
after a stay of some months at Kano, bringing with him some native 
Hausa MSS., carefully tested materials for a new Hausa dictionary, and 
a first draft of a translation of the Gospels of St. Luke and St. John 
into Hausi. The Hausa MSS. have been publi8he<l by the Cambridge 
University Presi, and Mr. Robinson has been appointed University 
Lecturer in Hausa. About 86 )/. has already been received or promised. 
The income for 1895 was £278. 

Communications should be raaile to Rev. J.O. F. Murray, Emmanuel 
College, Cambridge.

freely suppiied wherever reiiuired. The versions iif tbe Book of Common Prayer

I this direction. It may give snmo idea of the extent of this work if we furiiisli

The Prayer Book has lieen published, in whole or in part, in the following

In addition to these versions of our Liturjy, the S.l'.C.K. has produced nDmeroi — 
translations, in whole or iu p;irt, of tho Holy Scripturce. Besides pulilishiu;; vcraioi: — ' 

(Tbrietian 1(nowlet>ac Socteti?. 243 

the several European laiigoajB^es, which are much valued, this Society has produced 
I circulated the Scriptures, in whole or in part, in many of the lauguaees of AHia, 
iea, America, aiul the islands of the Pacitic. A detailed list is hardly possible, 
many of the Tersions were produced abroad at the Society's expense, and do not 
H.-ar upon the Society's catalogue. To the circulation thus dirvctiy given to tha 
ly Scripturea may be added the hulirrH distribution of God's Word through the 
;i' portioDa embraced in the versions of the Epistles and Gospels of the Book of 
omon Prayer. 

Whilst making careful provision for the distribution of the Bible, the Society has 
vimI from experience, especially in India, China, and New Zealand, the very groat 
•ortanee €>f coBibiuing with the Text where it is practicable a soparate and simple 
nmcntary. Without the assistance of some instruction it is often found that tho 
then fonn very erroneous oonc^options of th« truths of Holy Scripture. Tho S.P.C. K., 
I Church Society, is fully i>er8uailed of this great need, and some years ago extended 
sphere of oiJerations of its Foreign Translation Committee, so as to enable this 
nmittee to undeiiake any kind of work which may be deemed by our Bishops 
md likely to spread Christian knowledge. Hence the nxrent issues by tho Society 
commentaries, catechisms, manuals, hymn books, evidential works, grammars, and 
tiouaries, in various foreign languages. There is not a locality in the entire Mission 
1 of the Church of England whieh does not look to the S.P.C.K. for means to meet 
vernacular nwds. These needs l»ocome greater as the work of our foreign Missions 
ends, and every year, then?f<>re, sees an increased activity in this deiiai'tment of the 
I'iety's work. Tlio 0{)ening up of Africa alone has occasioned tho pro<iuction of works 
some dozen or more languages which had never previously taken a literary shape, 
though the Society's aim is, in the first instance, to meet the vemac^ular requirements 
Missionaries, its foreign public4itions in some cases bf»come the means of extending 
mmtrce and advancing civilisation generally among peoples still in a statt; of savagery. 
le dictionaries, grammars, reading books, &c., in Swahili, Yao, Bondei, Luganda, 
mnia, Gogo, and other East Coast and Central African languages, are used by 
plorers and traders, and the of sjireading light in the Dark Continent is thereby 
iftively aided. The agents of tlie Congo State, the n*prc.Hcntatives of Germany in 
1st Africa, and our own large trading c<»uipanies in East and South Africa, owe much 
the Society's press, whi<:h provid«'S them with the useful linguisti<; liandl>ooks referred 
. This is one of the ulterior issm-s of the Soci«'ty*s work, but it is not the only one. 
Iiilologists in the future will doubth-ss thank the ven«'nible Society for having given 
'nuancnt form to diiilet-ts whi^rh in conip;iratively ft;w ye:irs may have to give place to 
>c languages of the various (•ivilis«Ml raf-es now nt wt)rk in Africa, and for thus providing 
>'aiis for largi?r generalisations in dealing with the origin and laws of human s]ie<>ch.

*Hk Boards of Missions for the Provinces of Canterbury and York completed in 1893 

'jHe inquiries which they have been making for some years past as to the present con- 

**ition of Anglican Missions throughout the world. The seven Sub- Committees presented 

l^eiT Reports at a special meeting of the Boards held at the Church House on December 

'» 1893. The Reports were received and ordered to bo printed as the Report of the 

*|oanls, with a general preface which the Bishop of Durham undertook, at the retjuest of 

^Qe Boards, to write. The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge kindly under- 

^H)k to publish the Report, which was issued in the spring of 1894, just before the 

*^olding of the Missionary Conference, which the Board had initiated and promoted. 

The subject of the disabilities of native Christians in India, brought Ivefore the 
^'•onference bj' the Rev. H. E. Perkins, was carefully discussed by the Boards, and a small 
^^mmittee appointed, under the chairmanship of Sir Charles* Turner, to consider the 
^bole matter. The Bye-laws affecting the retirement and election of Clerical and 
^-«*y members of the Canterbury Board came into effect in the Spring of 1894. Canon 
!j*«)b, Vicarage, Portsea, and (in the place of the late General R. Maclagan, R.E.) 
J^». R. N. Cust, 63 Elm Park Gardens, S.W., were elected hon. secretaries. One- 
'otirth of the members elected bv the Lower House of Convocation, and one-fourth of 
^^« lay members, elected by the Board, now retire each spring, but are eligible for 

Another important subject occupied the attention of the Board, * the Selection and 
* Gaining of Missionaries' ; the opinion of persons competent to advise the Board, both 
^^ home and in the field, have been solicited, and the result tabulated, but the matter 
'^as not yet been deemed ready for final decision. 

In 1894 a Conference was held in London of the Missions of the Anglican Com- 
''iBnity, and the discussions were of the greatest importance. A Report in cHenso was 
T^tjblished at the close of the same year. Many moot points were ventilated by com- 
petent speakers. 

For the Province of York the Ven. Archdeacon Long, BishopweannoMth Rectory, 
Wonderland, and the Ven. Archdeacon Barber, St. Bridget's Rectory, Chester, continue 
^ be hon. secretariea.

Diocese of Lichfleld. — There is a Dioc(;8Aii Board of Missions, consisting of the 
Bishop, Pi-esident, one elected Member from each Rural Deanery, and a few iiersons 
appointed by the Bishop. Information Is obtaint'd, through the R.D. representatives, 
of the work that is being done in the Diocese for Missions, and a Report is presented at 
the Annual Diocesan Conference. A list of persons willing to lecture on si)ecial portions 
of the Mission Field is published in the Diocesan Calendar. Three Libraries of Books 
on Missions have been established, one in each Archdeaconrj'. An Annual Diocesan 
Festival is held in some large town ; the first, in 1895, was at Shrewsbury, in 1896 at 
Stoke, and this year 1897 will be at the Cathedml. A Form o( Service for such 
Festivals has been issued with the ftp])r()val of the Bishop. A 'Prayer for Missions* 
has also been issued. 

Bioeese of Idncoln. — A committee of the Diocesan Conference exists to organise and 
encoaragc efforte for the furtherance of Foreign Mission work. Among other movements, 
a prize-scheme for missionary knowledge has been instituted. An examination was held 
at the following centres during the week of intercession connected with St. Andrew's 
Day, 1896, vii. ; Lincoln, Boston, Gainsborough, Horncastle, Grantham, Grimsby, and 

Communications should be addressed to Rev. Canon Crowfoot, The Hostel, Lincoln. 

Diocese of Oxford. — The organisation of Foreign Mission work in this Diocese is 
Wider the direction of a committee of the Diocesan Confenmce, seeking to strengthen 
missionary work generally, to simplify deputational arrangements, and to provide for 
conferences and devotional meetings. It is intended to hold a missionary festival in the 
year 1897, and to form a branch of the Junior Clergy Association. 

Commnnications should be addressed to Rev. P. H. Ditch field, Barkham Rectory, 

Diooose of Salisbury. — The Board of Missions has been established twenty years, 
and consists of the Bishop and Archdeacons ex offinio^ and an equal number of members 
from the counties of 'Wilts and Dorset. It presents an annual report to the Synod, 
which aims at giving a concise review of what is being done by all the Societies at 
work in the Diocese. It organises Mission Festivals for the furtherance of the cause 
generally, rather than on behalf of any society in particular. Through this agency 
articles I)earing on some parts of the Mission Field are contributed to th(; Diocesan 
GazetUf thus insuring the wider circulation of information. The Board has been 
instrumental also in organising conferences in alternate years of Honorary Secretaries 
and others engaged in Foreign Mission work. 

Communications should be addr('ss(»d to the Hon. Sec, Rev. Precentor Carpenter, 
The Close, Salisl'ttry. 

Biooese of Tmro. — A Diocesan Board exists with a view to induce every parish in 
the Diocese to make some deftnit<^ effort for Foreign Missions combined with systematic 
intercession. The i^oard issues annually an analysis of the 3Ui)port given to Foreign 
Kinions iu the Diocese. 

Information may be obtained from Rev. A. A. Vaudrey, St. Gluvias Vicarage, 

Junior Clergy Associations. 

Vederatioii of Junior Clergy Missionary Associations (in oonneotion with S.P.O.).— 
|/ie Federation now numbers some forty separate Associations in it. The returns of the 
^Jfferent Associations as to number of members and so forth are not all to lumcl ;it date 
<** the publication of the Year- Book ; but th<Te can be little doubt that the Federation 
^<^Mr numbers some 2000 Clergy in its ranks. Two Conferences of Delegates frt>in the 
^^sociations of the Fetleration are held each year, one in London at the time of tlie 
^^nual S.P.G. Festival, the other in some large provincial centre in the month t)f 

3unior dlccgi; associations.

Areocintions with very great enocoaB. Where tlu' .lunioc Cltrgy orgBtiised such meetings 
tliey have vinifarmly been enthusiastic and sm^r^cufal. 

The Federation is at prsHeut eneoge'l in couceJt with the Home Orgnnieation Com-

ChUTOh MliiioiukrT Sooie^. — A Union of the Younger Clergy for London and the 
nuizhbuTirhood was eatablishod in ISSIi with a view to i?nli8t sympitthy and oo-uperatimi 
in the work of this Society for the study of inuuiiunary Bubjei.'Ls, and for uniCua intor-

Week held in November ISBG, the members gave over 100 addrestei and aennons. 
The Union has compiled a Missionary Litany, which has recuved the approval of the 
Archbishop of Canterbuiy. 

Forty of the membBrs havo gone out to the Foreign Miaslon Field under the C.M.S. 
since the Union was started, five of them during the post year. 

The Unions have an aggregate membership of about 1,100 Clergy. Delegates of the 
Unions met in Conference at Birmingham in June 1896. Other Eatherings promoted hy 
the Federation were held in London in May, end at Shrewsbury during the Church 
Congress week.

Society of tbe Sacreb flWssion^ 251 


The work of this Society was commenced in 1891 at the desire of the Bishop of Oorea 

for training working men and others, who might be deterred by absence of means or 

education. Till ISSS it wm known as the Corean Missionary Brotherhood. There is no 

entrance examination and no payments of any kind are required, the Society, except 

for one month's holiday in the year, providing for all expenses. On the other hand, the 

applicant must solemnly declare his desire and intention to serve his whole life in the 

Mission Field (1) unpaid, recei\'ing only the necessaries of life; (2) unmarried; (3) 

without seeking ordination or any other work than is assigned to him, unless specially 

instructed to do so by those in authority. The training vaiies from one to six years 

according to ability. Men are prepared for ordination, medical work, trades, or ps 

catechists, teachers, and assistants. The life is of the simplest : the cost of the whole 

house being from 451. to 50/. per head per annum. The discipline is that of a 

'religious' house. Up till lately the work was earned on in Loudon, at 97 Yasnall 

Kood, Brixton, but it is now in process of migration to Mildenhall, Suffolk, where 

accommodation will be provided for forty students. Hitherto the average number of 

residents has been twelve. Boys are received from sixteen years of age. 

The Society itself was founded in 1 893 to maintain the Religious Life and Organisation 
for those at work at home and abroad. There are branch houses in Central Africa at 
Mi^la, and in Corea at Mapo, each having four men. The students are not required 
to join the Society unless at their own desire, those who do not join being bound only by 
the three obligations stated above. The Society now includes four Priests, two Deacons, 
and thirteen laynlen. The Director and Chapter are the governing body. The Bishop 
of Rochester is Visitor. — Herbert Kelly, Director, S.S.M., 97 V^assall Road, Kenning- 


This Association has been in existence for twelve years with a view to encourage an 
interest in missionary work in the Army. Through the instrumentality of the 
Association the sum of 279^. 7s, 2d. has been raised in 1895 at the several garrisons. 
At 28 military depdts special observance was made of the Day of Intercession, and in 
the Sunday schools attached to the garrisons endeavours are being made to instruct the 
children as to their duty, as members of the Church, to intei^est themselves in tho 
^actension of missionaxy work. 

Communications should be addressed to the Honorary Secretary, Rev. T. F. 


This Society exists for the furtherance of an interact in Foreign Missions among the

The followiog reports, furnished by the Bishops themselves, may be 
[^pted as Official Summaries of the present poaitioD and work of the 
mreh in the several Dioceses. In order that this review of the work of 
e Colonial Church may be completely representative, it is earnestly hoped 
at the co-operation of the Bishops in commnnicating their annual 
porta may be more general and eystematic. Incorporated vritb this 
i:tion will be found a brief but comprehensive history of the growth of 
e Episcopnte in the ColoDies and British Settlements,

Oansral Setoriptiini. — Tbia Dincfse was raunded In 1845, before 
wliich time it foniiod purt of tho Dioccso of Nova Scotia. It cnm- 

C rises tliu wholo ot the Civil Provinno of New BrunBWic;k, and is 
nunded on the north by tlie Provinco of Quebec, on the oaat by 
tlie Gulf of St. Lawrence, on tlio south by tho Buy of Fundj, and on 
tho west by tlje State of Maine (U.S.}. A narrow isthmus, about 15 
miles across at its narrowest part, joins it on the south-east to the 
rrovincG of Nova Scotia. Tliu urea is 27,174 square miles, and tha 
population, m^coniing lo the conaus of 1891, was Z'21,Ze3. 

Cbnrch Work.— By the lant census (IS91) there were 43,095 
embers of the Churt-li of Eufiliiud, and thvro are at |>resent 7.284 coinmnnimnt!!. 
lit number baptited was 1,205, and confinued 057. There nro 7a on the roll of tha 
Iff^ ; of Ihese, five Imvc retired from the charge qf parishes, and two hold olhcial 
isti. Theie are aliout 158 consecrated churuhcs or chapels of ease, a[id 134 minion 
.ationa. A Cathodral Cliapter with provisional stntutea liaa been formed, consisting of 
le Bishop, the Deau, two Arclideacons, six Canons, and four lay members, making the 
rganisition of the Church iiinre complete, and increasinft. it is hoped, its inOucncu and 
oner. The llrotherhood of St. Andrew has now many Chaptora formed in tlie Diocese. 
la iiliiert U the spreuil of ChrUt's Kingdom among men. There is a multiplication of 
V-'Mociatious and Guilds for enlisting the sympntiiy and calling oat the energies 
f thK Church, especially the yoiiDg men and young women. A depoaitoiy of the 
society for Promoting Christian Knowledge is established in St. John, and is doing 
^(tellent work. 

TiiunM. — It is impossible to give any financial statement with respect to self- 
npporting parishes, which number 'iZ, as their iiccounts form no part of the Diocesan 
^D.inces. The inoome of the Church for the salarii'S of the Clergy of the aided parishes 
uJerived (1) from endowments ; (2) fmni the gniiit of the Society for tho Propagation 
if lh<! Gospel iu^ Forr-ign Parts; (3) from (he iulerest of invested funds ; (4) from 
'limitary subscriptions and donations. Tlip income from tho above endowmenbi 
uoDunts to $472; from the )^nt of the S.l'.G., S4, 1)07.23; from the interest of 
ureitments, $4,359; from voluntary .miitiibutions, 517,155.84, Total, $;ia,29l.07. 
'n addition to the above there is a Widows' anil Oiphuiis' Fund, of which the eatiitnl is
